I agree whole heartedly about the choices in school-I already commented on the soda issue and think they should allow the sodas

On the milk issue--kids in elementary school are still growing and they need whole milk for their body growth. My gd had to get a note from her doctor so they could get whole milk for her-she's under weight for her age and she's supposed to have whole milk, chocolate milk, anything to help her gain some weight. Healthy meals are fine-but they can make the basics healthy.
(I don't like milk myself, and haven't since I was in elementary school, but I make sure we have enough in the house for my gk's)
