Soda Free Sundays, a project of the Childhood Obesity Prevention Coalition and partners, is encouraging everyone in King County and beyond to take a break from soda and sugary drinks each Sunday for the next six weeks. This six-week effort kicked off at the Seattle Center on April 26th. It’s not too late to participate.
Sugary drinks are one of the major contributors of obesity today, particularly among kids. In King County, one in five middle and high school youths are overweight or obese, and over half of King County adults are either overweight or obese.
