No more school milk cartons

This AP story says that the school milk carton is being abolished:
Encouraged by a milk industry study that shows children drink more dairy when it comes in round plastic bottles, a growing number of schools are ditching those clumsy paper half-pint cartons many of us grew up with.

"Those ... square containers are awfully hard for kids," says New Hampshire Agriculture Commissioner Steve Taylor, who has watched the trend spread to some 320 schools in New England. "Teachers say you can spend the whole lunch period just walking around and opening those containers."
My local Si Valley paper has this story along with a story about more and more teenage girls are getting breast implants. No, there is no connection.
