#FoodFri Tweetchat: Enjoy Summer's Sweetness, Wholesomely!
August 8, 2014
We couldn't walk away. A challenge had been thrown down: "Make a pledge to do something in your community that reduces children’s intake of sugary drinks." Never one to back down, MomsRising.org has taken up the challenge!
Join us this Friday, August 8, 2014, at 1p.m. EST, on Twitter for our weekly @MomsRising #FoodFri tweetchat as we chat about summer's sweetness, without the sugary drinks!
The science is clear: Our kids are consuming too much sugar and it has serious implications for their future health. We’re asking you to make a pledge to do one thing to help reduce children’s intake of sugary drinks in your community. No action is too small. People, just like you, are taking action across the country.
Raise your voice, or listen in, as #FoodFri participants share their creativity, and pledges, for what's turning out to be one sweet summer. Because summer is sweet enough, without sugar-sweetened beverages!
