(Newser) – Pepsi said today it will pull its sugary drinks from schools worldwide by 2012, a move the company says was prompted in part by concerns over youth health. Pepsi will add low-calorie alternatives, a move one marketing analyst tells the Los Angeles Times is shrewd: “If they can keep kids interested in their healthier forms of soft drinks, then that’s going to be profitable for the company down the line.”
