TALLAHASEE, FL -- The Florida board of education is reportedly moving forward with a plan to eliminate "sugary beverages" systemwide. The move would make Florida the first state in the nation to ban flavored milk in public schools.

Board members tabled the issue last spring to see if the federal government would take the lead, but decided last week to ask doctors and researchers for their opinions, according to the Orlando Sentinel. The board plans to explore the ban in greater depth at its next meeting in December.

Under the anti-obesity initiative, elementary and middle schools would be limited to selling water, pure juice and white, lowfat milk. High schools would be allowed to sell some types of diet sodas and other low-calorie, low-sugar drinks.
