Chocolate Milk

Chocolate Milk | Chocolate Milk: 5th Grade Research-Based Argument Essay Unit | Scoop.it

Although milk is an important drink and an easy way for your child to get calcium and vitamin D into his diet, it is usually best to encourage your kids to drink plain white milk. Adding chocolate flavoring just gives your child unnecessary sugar and calories. If your child won't drink plain white milk, you might offer alternative sources of calcium before jumping to flavoring his milk with chocolate or strawberry syrup or powder, as it is usually difficult to get kids to later go back to drinking plain milk once they start drinking flavored milk.
