I think it's great, but I wonder if and when my school will follow suit. We own and stock our own beverage machine. We have improved to the point of not allowing any soda during the school day, but they still drink lots of sugary sports drinks and 10% juice drinks and that sort of thing.
I also wonder what the impact of limiting sugary beverages on behavior will be. On the down side, I don't think enough parents will follow suit at home.
