Please Urge Restaurants to Take Soda Off the Kids’ Menu

Soda and other sugary drinks are leading promoters of obesity, diabetes, and heart disease. Sugar-sweetened beverages are the largest source of calories in children’s diets and provide nearly half of their added sugar intake.

With one in three children overweight or obese in the U.S., it no longer makes sense to include sugary beverages as part of meals for young children.
