Perris, CA City Council Agenda Submittal

Consideration of an Ordinance Requiring Food Establishments in the City of Perris to Provide a Healthy Beverage as the "Default" Beverage in Children's Meals


The city of Perris, California passed an ordinance to support parents’ efforts to feed their children well when eating out.

The Perris law ensures that children won’t be served sugary drinks automatically with children’s meals (but families can still order them). Restaurant kids’ meals are intended for little kids, and just one soda exceeds the American Heart Association’s upper limit for added sugars for an entire day for children and teenagers.
