Healthy Beverages for Healthy Kids

Join the movement for healthy kids. Golden Healthy Kids' Meals is a city ordinance that will make our children healthier, make parents able to choose the items they want for their children, and make Golden a health leader.

What would change? The ordinance would require restaurants to offer healthy default drink options with kids' meals. Instead of a soda or other sugary drinks, restaurants would offer alternatives without added sugar such as milk, water, or sparkling water. What if my kid still wants a soda? Parents would still be able to purchase sugary drinks for their children and restaurants could still serve sugary beverages to children. This ordinance only affects the default beverage. How can I learn more?
