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.

    “As a 9-Time Olympic Gold Medalist, I’ve been exposed to so many
    health and wellness products over the years, and I can tell you that
    most of them are sorely lacking. The Yoli products are perfect for the
    entire family. Kids love the taste even though there’s no sugar, and
    adults love the way they make them feel. Take it from me,
    whether you’re looking to lose weight, have more energy,
    or just experience optimal health, Yoli is for you.”
