The New York Times is reporting that New York City schools have removed whole milk from their menus in an effort “to cut the risks of obesity, diabetes and other health problems” for the 1.1 million children that are part of the New York City school system.

Instead, one percent and skim milk still be served, and, the city has also decided to keep chocolate-flavored skim milk. The American Dairy Association pushed hard to convince city officials to keep some of the other flavored milks (vanilla and strawberry) but the city said no.

So when do you think they’re going organic?
