Chocolate milk, juice sales allowed back in NB schools

The provincial government has lifted the ban on chocolate milk in New Brunswick schools.

The PC government released a rewritten policy Wednesday which now allows the sale of chocolate milk and 100 per cent fruit juice in schools.

However, that doesn’t mean sales of those drinks will necessarily return to all schools in the province.

Individual schools will have the power to keep the ban in place is they so choose.

The Liberal government of Brian Gallant introduced the ban earlier this year.

The Dair Farmers of New Brunswick are applauding the move. They say sales dropped 40 per cent during the first three months of the ban.
