Soft Drink Makers Get on the Get Healthy Bandwagon

Coming soon to an aisle near you is Diet Coke Plus.

It is the same old soda, but with something a little extra, vitamins.

A recent study found a typical soda lover drinks less milk and gets less calcium.

So to help with slumping sales, Coca Cola is jumping on the get healthy bandwagon.

One can of Diet Coke Plus has 15% of the Niacin, B6 and B12 you need in a day, and 10% of the Zinc and Magnesium.

But is it worth the hype? Dietician, Jo Ann Carson says, "I think it tastes better than regular Diet Coke."

Diet Coke plus will not be the only vitamin added soft drink.

Pepsi plants to introduce its own version in the fall.
