A school in the Queens borough of New York City is working with a nutritionist to eventually eliminate sugar from food served at school. As part of the transition, the school already has banned bake sales and chocolate milk. To reduce the use of sugar -- or eliminate it completely -- from breakfasts and lunches, nutrition professionals have substituted agave and honey as sweeteners. The school is working with Energy Up Voltage Approved, a group that works to remove sugar from schools, to meet its goal.
