Yet Another Fast Food Chain Decides To Drop Soda From Its Kids' Menu

In response to pleas from various organizations to help promote healthier eating habits for children, Dairy Queen is the latest fast-food chain to remove soda from its kids' menu, following Burger King, Wendy's and McDonald's.

Lately, we've seen a major health-conscious shift in big food companies. Chipotle has stopped using GMO ingredients, Panera Bread removed the artificial additives from its recipes, and Kraft has eliminated artificial colors from its iconic mac & cheese.

At DQ, kids (or, rather, their parents) can still request a soft drink, but the default options listed on the menu will be bottled water and milk instead. The change will go into effect on September 1, 2015.

Of course, ice cream is still on the menu, just in case your kid wants to wash down his chicken fingers and fries with an Oreo-packed Blizzard.

But hey, one fewer sugary option is better than nothing at all. A root beer float is worse than a lonesome scoop of ice cream.
