STOCKTON, CALIF., JUNE 8, 2016 … Last night, the city of Stockton passed an ordinance requiring either water or milk to be served as the default beverage in children’s meals, the second law of its kind adopted by an American city, following the city of Davis, California. The so-called “healthy-by-default” rule – passed unanimously by the Stockton City Council – aims to tackle the city’s skyrocketing childhood obesity rate and worsening type II diabetes epidemic.
