It’s that time of the year again – the smell of sharpened pencils is in the air which means school is back in full swing!

We here at Sip & Savor think it’s important for our readers to know about our national School Beverage Guidelines.  We delivered on our commitment to parents and teachers by voluntarily removing full-calorie soft drinks from schools and replacing them with more lower-calorie and smaller-portion options.  This effort helped drive a 90 percent reduction in beverage calories shipped to schools.

We recognize that schools are unique places – and we delivered change that will have a meaningful and lasting impact for America’s schoolchildren for generations to come.  Our actions speak loudly – we take our role in being part of the solution to childhood obesity seriously, and the School Beverage Guidelines are proof of that.
