PEPSI to remove sweetened drinks by 2012

Pepsi announced plans Tuesday to stop selling its sugary drinks in schools around the world by 2012.

Pepsi will sell water, fat-free or low-fat milk, and sugar-free juice.

For secondary students, low-calorie soft drinks like Diet Pepsi will be added to the mix.

Coca Cola announced earlier this month it would stop selling its products in primary schools, unless parents or school authorities requested it sell them.
