Hospital Bans Sugary Drinks

Children’s Mercy’s administrators say the hospital is taking the lead in the Kansas City area by being the first to eliminate all sugary drinks there, starting in January. That means no soda or sugar-filled juices in the vending machines, the cafeteria or the gift shop.
The effort is part of a nine-point program set nationally by Partnership for a Healthier America, a nonpartisan, nonprofit initiative based in the nation’s capital that focuses on eliminating childhood obesity in the country.
