Some of the sweetness is leaving public school. Major beverage distributors and anti-obesity advocates have swung a deal that pulls non-diet drinks like regular Coke and Pepsi out of public schools.

The distributors forged the deal with the William J. Clinton Foundation and the American Heart Association. Along with pulling out the non-diet drinks, they're also agreeing to sell only water, juice and low-fat milks to elementary and middle schools.

Cadbury Schweppes, Coca-Cola, PepsiCo and the American Beverage Association have all signed onto the deal.
