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!
Together, we can fight childhood obesity by working to reduce the amount of sugar-sweetened beverages our children drink.
