Healthy Choices Vermont

Making the Healthy Choice the Easy Choice for Vermont Kids

 


Who We Are

We are a group of concerned Vermonters and organizations who are working to address Vermont’s obesity crisis, diet-related diseases, and create healthier food options for Vermont’s children. Our goals are to:


Kids Meals At Restaurants Should Be Good For Kids

As busy American families spend more of their food budgets at restaurants, kids menus lack nutrition standards. They’re packed with calories, salt and fat. Kids consume roughly 25% of their calories from eating out, and they eat almost twice as many calories there. We’re trying to ensure that all restaurant kids meals marketed to children in Vermont meet healthy nutrition standards. 


Voices For Healthy Choices

Let’s ensure all restaurant kids meals marketed to children meet nutrition standards, and remove sugary drinks as a menu option for kids.

Without policy efforts to address poor nutrition and lack of physical activity, chronic diseases and their costs will continue to skyrocket. The rates of Vermonters at an unhealthy weight is taking a toll on our health care system. Prevention is critical and science shows that education alone is not enough. State leaders must address the crisis through policy efforts that impact all generations of Vermonters.

Healthy Drinks & Healthy Meals

Why support legislation ensuring restaurant kids’ meals are healthy, including default healthy drinks?

We are asking Vermont legislators to support healthy kids’ meals in restaurants by having healthy drinks be the default choice in kids’ meals and ensuring restaurant kids meals marketed to children meet healthy nutrition standards. Read more here.
