It’s this time every year that people tend to get a little more health conscious.  Perhaps they want to lose a couple of pounds, or commit themselves to growing stronger.  It makes sense then that also around this time of year, we often hear ideas about how to accomplish those goals – whether it’s the latest diet craze, a new exercise routine or even taxes on common grocery items like teas, sports drinks, soda and other soft drinks.

Getting serious about obesity starts with education – not laws and regulation.  And we hope you agree.  Lawmakers and others who advocate for regulations that impact what you eat, drink and feed your family should focus on what matters most – education, safety and jobs – and leave the grocery shopping to us.  Check out for more information on how you can help prevent politicians from poking around in your grocery cart.  You can also check in with the coalition on Facebook and Twitter.
