Sugar Free Kids Maryland will be proposing legislation on May 21 at the Baltimore City Council. This will be an informational hearing to explain how sugary drinks are the prime culprit in diseases such as childhood obesity and teen diabetes, while telling the Council how our coalition is advocating for healthier drinking habits for the children of Baltimore and the entire state of Maryland. Several Sugar Free Kids representatives and partners, including Baltimore City Health Commissioner Dr. Leana S. Wen, will provide testimony in front of the Council. Each will discuss the dangers of sugary drinks, which contribute more calories and sugar to our children’s diet than any other single source. Sugar Free Kids Maryland is excited about bringing its initiatives to the Baltimore City Council. Call 443.766.1228, for more information.
