Chocolate industries are doing everything to sell a nice product especially to children. They have advertisement so that people will be convice if ever they have new products.
Flavored Milk has high sales amount. But the milk chocolates are sometimes not healthy because the milk used is from the cows' milk but it is treated with growth hormones.
In some studies, 85% non-organic milk is use. It contains growth hormones, but this is use to improve cows' milk production, however this is bad for our health as well. Mostly we see that chocolate contains low and non-fat milk, in this way it absorbs nutrients.
There are really alot of chocolate companies that let's us that chocolates are good, but it is not especially to children's life.
Here are reasons that you child shouldn't eat non-organic chocolates:
