(CNN Money) — Finish that soda, junior.

Dairy Queen is removing sugary drinks from its children’s menu, bowing to a request from health advocates.

The ice-cream and fast-food chain will remove soft drinks, including the neon colored Arctic Rush frozen beverage, from its kids’ menu and replace them with healthier options such as bottled water and milk.
The move was announced by the Center for Science in the Public Interest, which said McDonald’s (MCD), Burger King and Wendy’s have all made similar moves.
