July is almost over and that means that there are just a couple more weeks of summer.  School will start in a few weeks for most students.  And with a new school year comes new classes, book bags, clothes and, of course, options for what to drink!

Thanks to our member companies’ work on the School Beverage Guidelines, we removed full-calorie soft drinks from all schools and replaced them with a range of low-calorie, smaller-portion beverage options.  As a result of this initiative, there are 90 percent fewer calories available from beverages in schools nationwide.

Going back to school can be exciting to think about!  For now though, let’s pick out a nice cool beverage and embrace the fleeting days of summer.
