No more pop

NEW YORK (AP) -- The nation's largest beverage distributors have agreed to halt nearly all soda sales to public schools, according to a deal announced Wednesday by the William J. Clinton Foundation.


I think this is a great idea. For too long have I seen kids getting fatter and fatter. I don’t think all of it is the lack of physical exercise. I think most of it is from junk food, poor eating habits of the parents, and a cramming of sugary beverages down their throats.

Getting rid of pop in schools is the first step.

Removing junk food is tougher.

Getting parents to eat right, which in turn feeds their kids healthy diet and teaches them how to eat right, is going to be much harder.

However, each variable you remove from an equation makes the solutions easier to get to.
