Soda is appallingly bad for you... so this doesn't really surprise me, and in a lot of ways makes sense. If they banned it outright, like you couldn't bring it on campus, that would be ridiculous, but somebody has to teach our kids to eat healthy. Now if they could only make cafeteria food not be so shitty, they'd be on to something...

agreed. and it's not as though soda ends up in our schools to support freedom of choice... it's there because soda companies buy their way in, much to the chagrin of most parents.

you couldn't have it when I went to school in 60's- 70's.

school systems should be able to ban anytype of food or drink they choose too because.........

they are the one's in charge of the food/ drink. Why is this a problem????

No the parent is in charge of the food/drink that the child consumes. That said I have no problem with this. Ban that poo.

are you there while your child is eating and drinking?

if your not........you are not in charge.

the only way to control anything is to pack their lunch and make sure the have zero money.

When I was in elementary school they didn't sell soda. Middle school didn't either until I was in like 8th grade.

As long as they don't ban people from bringing their own, I don't see a problem.

They have a right not to sell certain products. You can still bring your own, so I don't get the whole outrage in that article (and the comments always make me lol ) :

This will mean that they won't be making any money from vendor sales, so eventually they will end the ban.

They need to teach kids moderation.
