Rethink The Drink
Dear [Decision Maker],
Nearly one in three children is overweight or obese in this country; unhealthy food and drink consumption increases their risk of suffering from chronic diseases as they grow into adulthood.
Sweetened drinks are a top source of calories and sugar in children's diets and key contributors to increased risk for developing cancer, diabetes, heart disease and obesity. Delaware, California, Hawaii, New York City and many localities around the country have passed policies to replace soda and other sugary drinks in restaurant children's meals with healthier options.I support making healthy beverages the default option on children's restaurant menus.
I urge you to vote yes for S-521; A-1741
Sincerely,[Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP][Your Email]
