Diet Nope: Colorado's large districts still keeping diet soda out of high schools


Diet Nope: Colorado's large districts still keeping diet soda out of high schools
Denverite (blog)

After a state rule change last fall that allowed Colorado high schools to sell diet soda after a seven-year ban, many of the stateâs big school districts have decided to stay soda-free.Officials in six of Coloradoâs 10 largest districts â Denver, Douglas County, Cherry Creek, Boulder Valley, Poudre and Colorado Springs 11 â say there are no plans to allow diet soda sales.In some cases, such as Boulder, the districtâs existing wellness policy already bans the soft drinks. In others, such as Poudre, the superintendentâs cabinet made the decision in the fall. In Denver, the districtâs Health Advisory Council has recommended a continued prohibition of diet soda, but the school board hasnât voted on the recommendation yet.âWe really commend the districts that are strengthening their own policies to continue to disallow diet soda,â said Sarah Kurz, vice president of policy and communications for the advocacy group LiveWell Colorado.
