Healthy Drinks Only - New Trend Hitting Many U.S Elementary Schools

There are no "healthy" foods, there is only eating healthily.
Although more elementary schools in the United States are replacing sugary drinks with healthier options, such as water, unhealthy beverages remain available to one-third of public elementary school students, according to a new report.

The study, published in the Archives of Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine, examined the availability of competitive beverages - those sold by schools outside of meal programs through vending machines, a la carte lines in the cafeteria, school stores and snack bars - in public elementary schools in the U.S.

The team discovered that more schools are removing unhealthy options, such as sports drinks, soda, and high-fat milk and replacing them with healthier choices, such as bottled water, 100% juice or low-fat milk.
This is politics, not science.
