Pepsi has announced that they are no longer going to vend full-calorie beverages in schools. Â They will only be serving bottled water, portioned fruit juices, milk and to the upper grade levels, diet soda and possibly sports drinks.
I think its great that school vending machines will no longer be serving full calorie soda. Â I just think its too bad the policy had to come from the soft drink company instead of the schools. Â Either way, I think this will be helpful in lowering the empty calories that kids intake, as long as they don’t load up on artificial juices and sports drinks. Â This new worldwide Pepsi school policy is at least a step in the right direction.
Do you think this policy will help fight childhood obesity or not?
