Daly City Adopts Kids’ Healthy Meals Ordinance
Congratulations to Daly City for being the first city in the county to adopt the Kids’ Healthy Meals ordinance! This policy makes water or low-fat milk the first choice in children’s meal combos for chain restaurants. It is a great step forward to curb the consumption of sugar-sweetened beverages among kids that research shows contributes heavily to obesity and diabetes. It also helps promote healthier food habits in our kids. For more information on this effort, click here. Daiy City joins other jurisdictions that already adopted similar ordinances: Berkeley, Cathedral City, Davis, Long Beach, Perris and Stockton. Stay tuned for next month newsletter that will include a case study to showcase the work of Youth Leadership Institute, one of our Get Healthy SMC partners that has led this effort in Daly City.
