Don’t Sell Us Short™…

Every child deserves a school environment in which he or she can learn, grow, and thrive. But across our nation, kids arrive at school every day and find themselves surrounded by advertisements and promotions urging them to eat and drink unhealthy food and beverages. Over time, those messages shape kids’ food preferences, purchase requests, diets, and overall health.

It’s time we stand up to marketers and say, “Don’t Sell Us Short™” of our—and our kids’—potential to live long, healthy lives.

Join us to help create a healthier school environment for America’s kids.
