Your doctor recommends: No sodas during the school week!

"Obesity is a terrible affliction for Latinos in Austin. We need to do many things to fight obesity, and one of the easiest and most important things we can do is to not give our children sodas or other sugary drinks. I ask Latino families to accept this challenge and promise to not drink sodas during the school week. This will help your children's health and education."
--Dr. Stephen Pont, Health Director for the Austin Independent School District (AISD)
