Earlier this week, we blogged about how, through our School Beverage Guidelines, we cut the amount of calories available from beverages in schools by 90 percent.  We worked with our school partners to accomplish this remarkable change in school nutrition, and it’s one initiative of which we are very proud.

We are also proud of the fact that our School Beverage Guidelines are reflected in the recently issued U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) standards for competitive foods that went into effect on July 1.  We commend the hard work of the USDA along with their school partners on their dedication to promoting healthy options for students with the new school nutrition standards.
