News Nugget: Soft drink sales way down in schools

With so many reports like this one showing the health problems in children because of obesity, it’s good to see efforts to turn things around. A new study shows a program aimed to sell healthier drinks in U.S. schools has helped cut the amount of full-sugar soft drinks in schools by 95 percent compared to 2004. Many health experts believe non-diet soft drinks are a big source of extra calories and that they are helping to fuel the obesity epidemic.
