Last June I wrote about the documentary Lunch Hour, which I enjoyed watching while attending the Health Freedom Expo in Chicago (you can read my post about Lunch Hour here). An opportunity has come up for all of us to do something to try to improve kids’ school lunches! In a March article “Dairy Industry Tries to Hide Artificial Sweeteners in School Lunches,” the Alliance for Natural Health website posted that aspartame is already being used in the flavored milk that kids receive for their school lunches, but now the International Dairy Foods Association and the National Milk Producers Federation want to remove aspartame from the ingredient label WITHOUT removing the aspartame! Aspartame can cause many health problems (you can read about them here: http://www.anh-usa.org/dairy-industry-tries-to-hide-artificial-sweeteners-in-school-lunches/), and it would be ideal to remove aspartame from kids’ milk altogether. Reducing people’s knowledge of the fact that they are consuming aspartame by eliminating it from the ingredient label is definitely yet another step to keep aspartame in the milk in the first place. Please read the article and consider clicking the “Take Action” button at the bottom of the article. It just takes a couple of minutes to fill in your information and send a quick note to the FDA to let them know you think all ingredients in food should be labeled. Thank you!
