For many parents, the excitement of a new school year can also mean less control over the food and drinks their kids choose. That’s why, more than a decade ago, America’s beverage companies voluntarily removed full-calorie drinks in schools across the nation.  We know that when parents can’t be there to help make balanced choices for their family, providing more choices of low- and no-calorie options is as important as ever.

And we delivered. By working together, we reduced beverage calories shipped to schools by more than 90%.
