Cow's Milk Out

The Los Angeles Unified School District has voted flavored cow's milk out and soymilk in.

Officials in the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) voted to remove flavored dairy milks like chocolate and strawberry from menus and replace them with soymilk and other options. In addition, more vegetarian options will be put on menus as the LAUSD moves toward feeding its students healthier alternatives. Celebrity chef Jamie Oliver tried to gain access to the LA schools’ cafeteria and had some trouble doing so, but a statement released recently commends Oliver for his efforts. Oliver pointed out that flavored dairy milk has as much sugar as a can of soda.
