Across the country, kids are getting sick at alarming rates from the food they eat. More than ever, children are inundated with junk food marketing, even as studies show that reducing predatory marketing improves kids’ health.
Each year the fast food industry sells more than $5 billion in kids’ meals by attracting kids with toy giveaways. It’s time such incentives stop being attached to food that is anything but happy for our children’s health.
That’s why the New York City Council is introducing legislation to set nutritional standards for kid’s meals sold with toy giveaways.
Take action below to urge the New York City Council members and Mayor Bloomberg to take a stand for kids’ health and pass this measure.
