McDonald’s recently announced they will offer healthier kids’ meals that promote water and low-fat unflavored milk. This is an important step because soda and other sugary drinks are the top source of added sugars in the American diet and excessive consumption leads to an increased risk of heart disease and type 2 diabetes.

Ask your Council Member to support legislation to make healthy drinks the norm for kids’ meals in all NYC restaurants!

It’s great that McDonald’s is taking steps to reduce sugary drink consumption in children, but shouldn’t New York City step up and make the healthy choice the easy choice for all our children, no matter where they eat? 

UPDATE: On March 12th, the Baltimore City Council unanimously approved legislation that will make healthier drink options the norm for Baltimore families when ordering restaurant kids’ meals. If Baltimore can do it, why can't New York City?
