Veryfine, school beverages

CINCINNATI, OH -- Sunny Delight Beverages Co. is launching some products with fewer calories and smaller package sizes to meet the Alliance for a Healthier Generation's school beverage guidelines.

The company's Veryfine 100% juice now meets the guidelines for elementary, middle and high schools by offering 120 calories or less per 8-fl.oz. serving in multiple flavors. The 8-, 10- and 11.5-fl.oz. sizes contain 100% vitamin C, plus 10% of the recommended daily intake of zinc and manganese. Veryfine 100% juices come in classic flavors like apple, orange and grape, and such "kid-preferred" tastes as cherry, fruit punch, apple strawberry and kiwi.

SunnyD, with 40% less sugar than most regular soda brands, has also been formulated to meet the guidelines. It has only 60 calories per 8-fl.oz. serving in 6.75-, 10- and 11.3-fl.oz. sizes. The drinks contain 100% RDI of vitamin C plus 10% RDI of vitamin B1.

Rounding out the new school-friendly offerings are zero-calorie Fruit 2O flavored waters, available in natural grape and strawberry in a 10-fl.oz. size.

Founded in 2005 by the American Heart Association and William J. Clinton Foundation, the Alliance for a Healthier Generation worked with the American Beverage Association to create the school beverage guidelines and improve students' health by limiting the calories they consume at school.
