Bill Would Limit Sales Of Sports Drinks At California Schools

LOS ANGELES (CBS) — Sales of both Powerade and Gatorade could soon be limited at more California schools.

Supporters of a proposed bill that would limit the sales of sports drinks during the day at middle and high school campuses say most sports drinks contain high-fructose corn syrup and other high-calorie sweeteners.

State Assemblyman Das Williams authored the bill, which is sponsored by the California Medical Association.

Sports drinks are already banned at elementary schools.

If passed,  it will go into effect next year.
