In the Hillsborough County (Fla.) district, Pepsi plans to replace high-calorie, fizzy drinks in school vending machines with more healthful options during the coming year, as part of a national initiative to combat childhood obesity. Pepsi, which has a 12-year, $50-million exclusive contract with Hillsborough schools, will offer only water to elementary students. Middle school students can choose between water and 10-ounce servings of 100 percent juice products. At high schools, Pepsi will sell diet soft drinks and low-calorie juices and teas. Sports drinks and fruit juices will be available in sizes no larger than 12 ounces.To read The St. Petersburg Times article, click here.
