BOSTON -- Flavored milk will continue to be sold in Massachusetts public schools under proposed nutrition rules unveiled on Aug. 20.

State regulators considered banning flavored sweetened milk from schools three years ago when they approved among the most stringent school nutritional guidelines in the nation, but delayed that action.

Under the updated proposal, an 8-fl.oz. serving of flavored milk can contain no more than five teaspoons of sugar, and many flavored milks meet those guidelines, according to regulators.

The revised rules, intended to bring the state into compliance with new federal regulations, apply to items sold in vending machines, school stores and a la carte cafeteria lines.
