With our busy lifestyles, families are eating out more often, sometimes at fast food restaurants where the choices aren’t always the most nutritious.  Convenience and getting a quick meal into children before homework or bedtime is usually what goes into making the choice of where to get that dinner.  It’s a reality of life, but there is a way to make that ‘easy choice’ a bit healthier for kids.  The American Heart Association supports policy to ensure that sugary drinks are not included on a “kids meal” menu in restaurants.  When healthy beverages are the default choice, such as low-fat milk and 100% fruit juice, the easy choice becomes the healthy choice, when families eat out.  This coming legislative session You’re The Cure advocates can encourage lawmakers to support children’s health by supporting a policy to remove sugary drinks from restaurant kids meals menus.
