Coke goes global with anti-obesity push

NEW YORK - Coca-Cola says it will work to make lower-calorie drinks and clear nutrition information more widely available around the world.

The Atlanta-based company already offers diet drinks in most markets. But they're not as readily available in emerging markets such as China as they are in the U.S.

A Coca-Cola spokesman says the goal is to have diet options available wherever regular versions are sold.

With sugary sodas coming under fire for fueling obesity rates, Coca-Cola Co. has been more aggressive in emphasizing its commitment to healthy lifestyles.

Earlier this year, it began airing its first TV commercial in the U.S. addressing the topic. That ad has since been rolling out to other countries.
