School beverage study

Report: Students drink less sugary soda under new national guidelines
About 45% fewer full-calorie soft drinks were shipped to U.S. schools in the 2006-07 school year vs. 2004, following implementation of new nutritional guidelines last year, the American Beverage Association said. The average high school student drank an average 5.9 ounces of regular soda per week, compared to about 12.5 ounces in 2004.
