A move in the right direction for healthier kids menus, the fast food chain Jack-in-the-Box, is taking soda and sugary beverages like Hi-C punch and lemonade off of their kids’ menu.
The new kids’ menus offering healthier beverage options will take place in all 2200 of the chain’s locations nationwide.
Groups like Moms Rising and the Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI) has worked with parents across social media and advocacy groups to help encourage these changes towards healthier beverage options and less promotion of sugary beverages in restaurant chains across the country.
More is needed to be done to help Latino kids see healthier options as the easier and more appealing choice, as studies show Latino kids are advertised sugary beverages and unhealthy snack food more than their white peers.
Restaurants like Arby’s, Chili’s and Bojangles are still on the map in needing to offer and promote healthier beverage options on kids menus.
