Not-so-happy meals on the cards for California kids

  • 18/08/2018

California lawmakers could make that sugary fix harder to get for kids.

A new Bill, if made law, would force restaurants to automatically serve water or milk with kids meals instead of juice or soft drinks.

Supporters of the Bill include the American Cancer Society, which argues children's meals shouldn't come with a side order of diseases.

"Some of these kids are drinking up to three sodas a day - this is setting them up for tremendous cancer risks down the road because now we know that 20 percent of all cancers are tied to being overweight," says Stephanie Winn of the American Cancer Society.

Some parents say the move could help curb childhood obesity, but the idea isn't going down as smoothly with others.
