Burger King has agreed to remove sugary soda from its kids’ meals and menus. Additionally, the company will not market soda as part of its kids’ meals at all.  All the changes have been made at headquarters, and individual franchises are in the process of making the switch.

Burger King made the change, “as part of our ongoing effort to offer our guests options that match lifestyle needs,” said Alex Macedo, president of Burger King North America, in an e-mailed statement to USA TODAY. Instead of soft drinks, the Burger King menu for kids will offer fat-free milk, 100% apple juice and low-fat chocolate milk.

Health advocacy groups like CSPI and Mom’sRising have been calling for Burger King to kick sugary sodas off the kids’ menu for the past year.
