Pepsi Bans Sugary Drinks in Schools Around the World

Wow... I haven't blogged in forever and so behind in reading all your blogs... I'm sorry... :(
Wish I could learn to find some balance in my life...!

Saw this and thought I'd share...

Pepsi announced it will voluntarily stop selling its sugary-drinks in elementary and secondary schools... around the world by 2012!

Now, if you're worried about how Pepsi will survive this loss of revenue... don't.

In primary schools, PepsiCo will sell water, fat-free or low-fat milk, and sugar-free juice.

In secondary schools, low-calorie soft drinks like Diet Pepsi will be added to the mix.

Gatorade will only be available in relation to sport, not for everyday use.

A step in the right direction, right?
