A small bag of baked Cheetos could be sold during school hours, but forget about Gatorade or even whole milk.
New food rules proposed by state education officials on Friday would prohibit the sale of snacks with too much fat, sugar or calories during the school day, as well as carbonated drinks, juice drinks that aren't 100 percent juice and milk that isn't low-fat.
Baked Cheetos would make the cut because a 1-ounce bag doesn't exceed 35 percent in fat calories--one of the proposed standards. But Gatorade has too much sugar, state officials said. Only non-flavored, non-sweetened and non-carbonated water will do.
For many people, three eight-ounce glasses of whole milk provide more than the recommended limit of saturated fat for a whole day – and that’s without counting the meat or other sources of saturated fat that may also be consumed.

Agree with you milk in studies has shown that is actually accelerating the growth of girls due to the hormones in it.

Whole milk is only bad for you if you're not getting enough exercise. US milk used to be banned for exporting because it wasn't treated properly.
As for the hormones? Look at the meats. They're pumping cows and chickens so full of hormones that the average age of puberty is descending.
Stop blaming the foodstuffs and make them pick up a baseball.
