The Center for Science in the Public Interest recently shared that the Healthy Kids' Meal Bill was introduced to legislators on Capital Hill. The bill intends to promote change in the restaurant industry by ensuring that kids meals at restaurants come with healthy beverages and not sugary sodas. Currently 74% of the top 50 restaurant chains have not yet stopped bundling soda with kids meals, but there is hope seeing as 26% of them have made the switch.
Unhealthy beverages are one of the leading culprits of diabetes, weight gain, and other health problems. What kids learn today about nutrition helps set the stage for good health for the rest of their lives. To eradicate the obesity epidemic, it is essential for this kind of change to occur.
