California Soda Tax Committed to Addressing Obesity
Kudos to the San Diego Union Tribune for publishing an op-ed today and bringing to light why a soda tax can help curb California's obesity crisis. For moms like me, funding towards programs like this gives me hope that I have someone on my side to help me fight the suffocating marketing influences of the corporate giants. Maybe one day I won't feel like the bad mom who says no to sodas because as my children say, "What's the big deal? Everyone drinks them." I'm trying hard not to roll my eyes like Michelle Obama, but it is a big deal.
