STATEMENT FROM GOV. MALLOY’S COMMUNICATIONS DIRECTOR ANDREW DOBA ON CHOCOLATE MILK
 
(HARTFORD, CT) – Andrew Doba, Director of Communications for Governor Dannel P. Malloy, today released the following statement regarding legislation approved by the Connecticut General Assembly that bans the serving of chocolate milk in public schools:
 
“This specific bill has not yet come to the Governor’s desk and will be reviewed in detail when it arrives.  However, on the broader topic at hand, the Governor is not supportive of banning chocolate milk in public schools.  While we must be extremely mindful of the nutritional value of what’s offered to students, ensuring an appropriate array of options helps to ensure that kids receive the calcium and other nutrients they need.”
