Had you ever thought about what is in the chocolate milk you are holding in your hands?

You should really pay attention to what you need to stay healthy. There is a 7-9 percent chance that you will pick chocolate milk; there is a 3-1 percent chance that you will pick plain milk.

One reason to stay healthy is that it's got a sugar overload in store. the next avalanche on the snowy mountains is the unnecessary ingredients that you don't need. And finally, the show-downer, chocolate milk can give major or minor stomach problems.

had you ever thought about what is in the chocolate milk you are holding in your hands? You should really pay attention to what you need to stay healthy, instead of the unhealthy choice. Up there I said that chocolate milk was the unhealthy choice, it's true. For example, chocolate milk's added sugar and calories can cause overweight and obesity. Way too much chocolate milk can lead to heart disease and/or cancer. Kids drink chocolate milk because it's flavored chocolate, and because it's got the chocolaty flavor. As I wrote this, it was like I was learning and this paper was the teacher.

Chocolate milk has gone downhill in Los Angeles when Jamie Oliver's convinced the parent that chocolate milk is giving their kids a sugar overload. HGe's managed to convince all the schools in Los Angeles to ban chocolate milk next year. Jamie is a famous chef and serves school lunch for kids. In addition, Danelle Martin, school cafeteria monitor, says "It's as simple as that kids should be drinking plain milk and that's what they should be serving in schools."

I say that one thing chocolate milk should not have is unnecessary ingredients. An example is that chocolate milk contains caffeine, saturated fat and sugar, plus a few unneeded calories; chocolate milk can be very dangerous because of those. Plain milk has double the vitamins, calcium and protein and less calories that chocolate milk. Finally chocolate milk can give sugar rush and hyperactivity.

One of the worst things that chocolate milk can do to you is major stomach problems. Drinking chocolate milk is the start, then chocolate milk adds stomach acid and too much can lead to a big problem, and too much can make your future unpredictable. Plain milk doesn't do damage to something you use every day. This proves that chocolate milk can harm, not help. Like they say, one small thing can make a big difference.

Finally, they should not serve chocolate milk at school because it is dangerous. It is dangerous because it can trigger a sugar overload; it can also contain unwanted ingredients and finally, it can give you major stomach problems.These are important because chocolate milk can affect children's future and their health. Some schools are OK with chocolate milk because they think that it gives nutrients.
