Tell your Council Member to be a voice for healthier children in NYC!

New Yorkers lead busy lives, and more and more, we’re eating out. Unfortunately, many of the meals on children's menus in restaurants come with sugary drinks, such as fruit drinks with added sugar, sports drinks, and soda, which are a major contributor to the increasing rates of diabetes and heart disease. We need to change that.
Council Member Ben Kallos has introduced a bill (Int. 1064-2018) that would make healthier drink options - like water, seltzer, or low-fat milk - the norm on any restaurant menu marketed to children. By providing healthier drinks with kids’ meals, we are supporting our children’s health and helping them live longer, healthier lives.
