People are talking in the school about what we have been doing with our Milk Revolution. We need a plan of action.
Here is our plan:
1. We are going to share what we have learned about the sugar in the milk. We might be able to talk about it at the next assembly, but that isn't for a month. What could we do in the meantime? Maybe we should break up and go class to class with our bag of sugar and share the link about the Jamie Oliver's school bus. We will survey how many students drink chocolate milk verses how many drink white milk in the lunchrooms next week and then compare our results after the assembly. We know our school receives approximately 2 crates of white milk and 12 crates of chocolate milk every two weeks. We think if we educate our classmates they will want to change the milk.
We already know our principal supports what we are trying to do. We are very lucky because we are allowed to choose white milk and our parents can make the decision for us not to have the chocolate milk. All we need to do is educate people that chocolate milk is meant to be a treat once in a while.
Even though the battle at our school isn't going to be too difficult, we have to make changes in the city. Maybe we can share what we're doing with other schools and have them make the changes too. Maybe one day all the schools in Alberta or Canada will only serve white milk for lunch.
