I signed, now I’m asking you to sign.

Launched April 11 2011: It’s not just soda that’s full of sugar. Kids are getting it from the chocolate and strawberry milk they drink at school every day. Chocolate milk has the same amount of sugar as a soft drink and just one additional soft drink per day increases a child’s obesity risk by 60% and is a major contributor to Type 2 diabetes. Plain white milk doesn’t have any added sugar. Join the Food Revolution in asking schools to promote plain, white milk instead.
