In this video Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution shows us that our school kids are literally drowning in sugar. Here is Jamie’s goal: Effect education and change, starting with the schools, and branching out to families and restaurants. Milk is pushed on our kids in schools and worse yet, 75% to 85% of it is flavored milk. One 8 ounce carton of milk contains 28 grams of sugar. On 2 ounce Snickers bar contains 28.8 grams of sugar. We are having our kids drink a Snickers bar as part of their school lunch. WHAT ARE WE THINKING?! Childhood obesity is a unnecessary and preventable epidemic. We can change that. It is time for each of us to stand up for our kids and start a Food Revolution in our homes and in our schools.
Our Kids Don’t Need Sugar In Milk
When kids drink chocolate and strawberry milk everyday at school, they’re getting nearly two gallons of extra sugar each year. That’s really bad for their health.
Get The Hard Facts About Flavored Milk
You may be wondering why I am supporting Jamie Oliver in only having plain mild served in schools when I truly believe that no milk should be served to our kids. Well, I just don’t see no milk as a reality any time soon for our schools. The dairy council is too politically powerful to do that. But, I do believe we can take the first step and get the sugar out of our schools. And, to me the great news is that for those kids who refuse to drink plain milk rather than strawberry or chocolate milk, that’s GREAT! No milk is better yet.
It is inexcusable that for the first time since the Civil War, our children have a shorter life expectancy than our generation thanks to childhood obesity. We can change that. Childhood obesity is unnecessary and preventable. What are we doing having kids drink a Snickers bar as part of their school lunch? As adults, we must take action now and save our kids. As a nation, we simply cannot afford the healthcare costs of obesity – especially since it is totally preventable. Come on folks, let’s take action now.
