Chocolate milk should be served in school!!!
Debate Rounds (1)
First of all, chocolate milk has all 9 essential ingriedients. It has calcium, which makes the kids grow taller, and also the sweet taste, unlike white milk which some kids can call "yucky" or "too plain".
I know what you are thinking, that it causes obesity and stuff, but then, kids are kids. They run around the playground at lunchtime, so there is not a big chance that they will turn suddenly obtuse just because they drink chocolate milk.
Now, you night think that there are too much sugar, but the truth is, The little bit of sugar is what keeps them going during the day and keeps them energetic and healthy.
There are more reasons, but for now, this is it. I hope you vote for me!
First, normal milk already has 12 grams of sugar in it. Chocolate milk has 30 grams of sugar. According to the Coco-Cola company, that's more than a mini can of coke, which has 25 grams of sugar. That means a small container of chocolate milk has around 20% more sugar than soda. Also, when kids drink chocolate milk every day at school, they get nearly two gallons of extra sugar per year, according to Jamie Oliver. Having too much sugar is bad for you- men should have 37.5 grams of sugar per day, while women should have 25 grams per day.
Second, schools spend a lot of money on chocolate milk. In 2010, four of Florida's biggest school districts spent 13 million dollars on chocolate milk. They could have used that money for more important things for education. What do you think is better, flavored milk, or a better learning environment? It's obvious which choice is better.
In conclusion, I believe chocolate milk should not be served in schools. It has too much sugar and too much money spent on it. Many people would agree.
