If you want whole milk and your school doesn't serve it ... bring your own. Pay for your own.
actually whole milk is more healthy

2% or even worse skim is higher in SUGAR, and the fats in whole milk help to BREAK THE SUGAR DOWN

I try really hard to avoid anything overly processed with tons of preservatives. That stuff is garbage, even in moderation. Fats, sugar, salt bring it on!!!

Have you been reading this thread? Did you miss the part where about a million of us pointed out that the government is not, in fact, banning whole milk?

Um no. This is what my dumb teachers kept trying to ram (literally) down my throat. Human beings have no business drinking cow's milk. A very small percentage of humans are able to tolerate it. The vast majority of humans develop signs of sickness after drinking it. I think it is downright criminal to get kids to drink it if they are not your own. Who needs dumb teachers and well meaning strangers with no understanding of biology making your kids sick by convincing them that milk is good [sic] for them?

Whole milk contains all the vitamins, fats, nutrients and proteins children need for their bodies and bones to grow properly. Maybe if schools brought back longer recess times and mandatory PE classes, this obesity thing wouldn't be as much of an issue.

Non-fat milk is just a watered down version of real milk and doesn't contain everything a child needs.

Things like this are why we need to get the government out of our lives.
