One horrific, one great decision for kids

Great Decision
Decreasing the amount of caloric beverages consumed and simultaneously increasing water consumption is important to promoting child health and decreasing the prevalence of childhood obesity.

New York public schools installed filtered water jets and found an association in decreased student weight. Reduced milk and chocolate milk purchases purchases were one of the reasons why. The research appeared in last month's JAMA Pediatrics.

Horrific Decision
EFSA, which is the FDA of Europe, approved the artificial sweetener sucralose for infant medical foods, as well as for foods and beverages in children aged one to three.
