No More Chocolate Milk At L-P?

Posted by wlpo on May 15, 2013

He may be an orthopedic surgeon but that doesn’t mean Dr. Peter Meier of the L-P School Board isn’t worried about obesity issues.

When awarding a 25 thousand dollar bid for milk next school year Meier suggested looking at dropping chocolate milk from the menu.  Meier said “chocolate milk isn’t exactly the healthiest thing in the world and they’re not doing students a favor by providing it.”  Meier pointed to obesity issues.

If the L-P board were to eventually stop offering chocolate milk it would be a cost savings.  Of the 25 thousand dollars the district will pay for milk next school year, 20 thousand of that is for chocolate milk.

No other board member said yes or no to Meier’s suggestion.
