A group of Minnesota House Democrats introduced a bill this week that would require restaurants to serve certain drinks as the “default beverage” for children’s meals.
The bill was introduced Tuesday by Reps. Jeff Brand (DFL-St. Peter), Samantha Vang (DFL-Brooklyn Center), and Rob Ecklund (DFL-International Falls).
Under the bill, all Minnesota restaurants would be required to make the “default beverage” included with children’s meals either water or sparkling water, unflavored milk, or a nondairy milk alternative that contains “no more than 130 calories” per serving.
Look – as I’ve noted, I’m all for cutting. It’s cut my obesity rate pretty sharply.
But it’s not like Minnesota DFLersl aren’t making it hard enough to run a business of any kind, much less a restaurant.
The real question: when do we find out about the kickbacks from Big Water and Big MilK?
