Sign our petition to the National Restaurant Association!
The National Restaurant Association represents over 380,000 restaurants nationwide. In response to the growing cultural emphasis on healthy diets, the Association encourages their members to offer and promote healthy meal options to children ages 12 and under based on special nutrition standards, through their Kids LiveWell Program. However, because diet-related health disparities are worsened by disproportionate marketing of unhealthy foods and beverages to youth of color, we need healthier meals on menus—especially for items popular with Black youth up to age 18—and we need them to be advertised and promoted.
Signing this petition will show support for OGF&B and can encourage the National Restaurant Association to continue positive steps they have already taken.
