San Francisco school district is taking a step to remove an item from the school menu that contains about 40 percent of the recommended daily sugar allowance in a child’s diet.
San Francisco schools have already taken many steps to make their schools healthy environments for students by banning sodas in schools, and they do not allow sweets or cookies to be served with lunch. Now, the school district is removing chocolate milk from middle schools this fall, and from high schools in the spring. Learn more about this healthier approach and why San Francisco is implementing this ban to their school menus.
