You Did It, Illinois!

Great news! Because they heard from amazing advocates like you, the Governor has signed Senate Bill 1846, legislation that will ensure water, milk and 100% juice are the default drink options in restaurant kids' meals.

Between juggling work schedules, school and activities, busy families are ordering out more than ever. Unfortunately, even an 8 oz 'child-size' soda has about 6 teaspoons of sugar. In fact, the average child in the U.S. consumes over 30 gallons of sugary drinks every year--that's enough to fill a bathtub!

This exciting step to ensure families have healthier options when eating out would not have been possible without your emails, phone calls and outreach to members of the General Assembly and the Governor's office. Thank you for raising your voice to help get Senate Bill 1846 across the finish line!
