US City Bans Sugary Drinks on Children’s Menus (Learning English)
Sunday Jul 29th, 2018
Recently, Baltimore, Maryland, became the largest city in the United States to ban restaurants from including sodas and other sugary drinks on their menus for children.
Now, Baltimore’s restaurants can only offer milk, water or 100 percent fruit juice as drinks with meals meant for children.
At places to eat in the city, boys and girls can still drink soda. But an adult will have to order it for them.
Restaurants failing to obey the new law face a $100 fine. Doctor Leana Wen is Baltimore's Health Commissioner. She said that the "law will help families make the healthy choice the easy choice."
