|26g of sugar|
We also compared the amount of sugar in milk to a can of Coke. It had 59g of sugar. Most people agree that even 26g of sugar is too much sugar to have every day.

We went home that night and shared our new knowledge with our parents. The parent reaction has been interesting. Some parents were surprised to learn there was a choice for milk on the form sent home in September. Next year we will help remind parents about choosing non-flavoured milk.
Here are some of our parents' quotes:
~"Oh my gosh!"
~"I can't believe I'm getting my daughter this!"
~"You can eat a bag of carrots this big to get the same amount of sugar in that milk."
~"We're changing this milk immediately."
We'll keep you posted on The Milk Revolution!
