Bans like these are always a bad idea. I live in the UK and they are proposing a fat tax, like some other EU countries have done. But that includes coconut oil and other healthy fats. (While most (rancid) vegetable oils are worse for you). Some people think all fat is created equal and all sugars are created equal. What could be next a large bottle of green tea sweetened with honey (hopefully packaged in glass!) It's up to parents to teach their children about making healthy choices. I think government giving nutrition advice is a bad idea. Look at our Food Pyramid - ridiculous and hasn't increased America's health. I like Beth's idea of a plastic bottle tax better.

Hi!  Your'e doing great! You can make your own almond milk in a Vitamix or other high powered blender. Buy bulk almonds, cheesecloth and make your own!
