There could be a new rule for schools. The House and Senate approve banning the sale of soda and sugary drinks in elementary and junior high and middle schools.
The bill would limit beverage choices to water, low-fat milk, and pure juice. The bill is encouraging young learners to practice nutritious habits.
Brian Achilles with Lubbock ISD ARAMARK said,"For Lubbock ISD we don't carry any carbonated drinks. We don't have any sodas in our schools. The only drinks that we carry is milk, one-percent, or skim flavored, bottle water. We also have Gatorade's and Powerade's, which are under the 12 ounce cans or bottles."
The sugary ban, H.B 217, is sitting on Governor Perry's desk awaiting his signature.
