In an effort to combat child obesity, about 35 million students in the United States will no longer be able to buy regular soft drinks at school.

Major beverage distributors and anti-obesity advocates have reached a deal, brokered by the William J. Clinton Foundation, to restrict the selection in vending machines.

Only water, juice and low-fat milks will be sold in elementary and middle schools.

In high schools, diet soda will still be sold, as will unsweetened teas, sports drinks and flavoured water.

lol well I'm graduated but if I still went to school I'd just get pop from somewhere else. I'd sneak it in the school if I had to.

There are these really cool places called stores. Before or after school you walk into this thing called a store and you can get soda pop there. It's usually cheaper too.

Sorry I couldn't resist the sarcasm. Seriously though, there are other places to buy soda pop. Drinking pop is a nasty habit though, believe me, I know from experience.
