Schools in Hawaii have decided to limit the amount of soft drinks available to students. The state's board of education voted in favour of a policy requiring vending machines to be stocked primarily with water, milk and fruit juices.

The board, which has yet to hammer out the details, says it enacted the policy to try and bring down the rate of childhood obesity. Dean Okamoto, the director of food service for The Pepsi Bottling Group in Hawaii, told the Honolulu Advertiser that Pepsi offers schools balanced drink choices and added that schools should have the right to determine what is sold.


Sectors: Soft drinks

Companies: PepsiCo
