Description:

Sports drinks have become a popular alternative to sodas and high-calorie drinks for school-age children. But given the limited amount of physical activity most students participate in at school, should these types of beverages be sold in schools? The "Sports Drinks in Schools" fact sheet provides information about sports drinks, how accessible they are in schools, and recommends limiting access or removing sports drinks from schools.
