Jamie Oliver Shows How Much Sugar Is in Flavored Milk in LA Schools (VIDEO)

Last season, 'Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution' (Tue., 8PM ET on ABC) went to America's unhealthiest cities in Huntington, WV. This year, he was off to one of its largest. Once there, he met resistance at just about every corner.
The Los Angeles Unified School District, the second largest in the US servicing between 700,000 and 750,000 students, refused him access to their schools. None of the national fast food chains that got their start in LA were willing to work with him -- he did get a smaller local chain to open their doors, but the owner was reluctant to make expensive changes.
In an attempt to shock them, he decided to turn his attention to the flavored milk available in the school. While the perception is that this is a healthier alternative, it actually contains as much sugar as soda. So he set up a dramatic demonstration.
