California Parents Lose One More Right As State Limits Kids’ Menu Drinks To Water Or Milk


This story is not big as the lightbulb, shower head or toilet water restrictions the government has imposed. Maybe not as big a story on a ban on plastic straws. Just a reminder on a Saturday that the march on our liberties moves forward unabated. Just an update for my Saturday Flashback

Remember Mooch Obama bans fried foods and Frosted Flakes at Daycare Centers

Centers will be allowed to serve cheese, cottage cheese, and yogurt, as long as it has fewer than 23 grams of sugar per 6 ounces. The first version of the regulation would have banned cheese, cottage cheese, and “cheese food, or spread.”

The government said it will allow daycare centers to break the rules for special occasions like birthdays, but urged centers to “use discretion.”

Back to the latest control:

Yes, the rumors are true. California lawmakers passed a state law that forces restaurants within the state to offer only select beverages on children’s menus. Governor Jerry Brown signed SB 1192 into law in late September and it easily passed in both the State and the Assembly. Support for the nanny state law flew under the guise of what’s healthiest for the children.

The default options for beverages on children’s menus have been forced to change to unflavored milk and water.


Should the government dictate what drinks a restaurant can serve to patrons? Do you want the government to decide what is healthiest for your children? When you go to McDonald’s, are you there for a fat-free kale smoothie? Is this giving you flashbacks to Nanny Bloomberg’s large drink ban in New York? (Which, I might add, was finally struck down in court as unconstitutional.)

That is precisely what is happening in California right as we speak. You are probably not surprised, but at the same time, when will the insanity stop?

Nothing against dairy on this site, but it does cause some problems for a lot of people. So who is to say that prompting the parent to “choose” milk is automatically healthier than the occasional soda drink? One could surmise that orange juice is healthier than soda until you see how it’s made and realize that it’s not the wholesome fruit-based drink we think it is.

Previously, California banned the sale of soda pop in schools. But, teens then apparently took to sports drinks.

Intellectual Takeout says:

As a 2013 study on the effects of soda bans published in the International Journal of Behavior Nutrition and Physical Activity warned, “State laws that ban soda but allow other SSBs [sugar-sweetened beverages] may lead students to substitute other non-soda SSBs.” (Unsurprisingly, California lawmakers also tried to ban sports drinks in schools in 2010. They failed, but the USDA passed a nationwide ban in 2013).

[…]A 2018 UCLA study found that while adolescent soda consumption was down in California, sugar consumption overall was still on the rise.

    I think most people look at stories like this and just forget about them because they think it is not a big issue, but every loss of freedom and liberty adds up and more people need to start taking these stories seriously.

    I had a snot nose college student holler at me the other day about eating a Reece’s cup that hubby had put in my lunch. BECAUSE PEANUT BUTTER CAUSES PEOPLE TO HAVE ALLERGIC REACTIONS. Give me a break, I’ll eat what I want and that’s what I told her and popped it in my mouth and promptly stuck my tongue out. I did. lolol–she looked at me like I had 4 heads.

    ANYWAYS, Lived in Cali in the late 80’s while hubby was in the Marines and I really have no desire to go back. sigh

    Nobody here in California’s ever heard of this…..I’m not worried 🙂 Restaurants are the food police now? People will order what they want and give it to their kid. Michelle’s broccoli instead of pizza thing resulted in school trash cans overflowing with broccoli……..Did that finally get reversed?

    That’s hilarious. Now let’s get a bunch of African Americans and Asians together to accuse the governor and legislature of exercising their white privilege since people of European descent are pretty much the only peoples in the world to be able to digest milk past infancy (there are exceptions and I’m aware of them).

    I do understand that there are some people in California who are permanently locked in to living there for the rest of their lives. These would be people without any legs, or arms, and single-cell bacteria. I have to say that what has happened to CA in the political sense is really quite sad because the state is absolutely gorgeous. Were it not for the rabid communist political system there, CA would be a near-Utopian place to live. Having lived in CA while serving on active duty, I can tell you that the move to destroy families by removing the right of parents to raise their own children has been going on for decades. Year after year if it isn’t one assault on the family, then it’s another. If only there were multiple cell bacteria living in CA that might take the state back from the edge of the bizarre world. I ask too much.

      I recall back int the ’70s it was a perfect land. What has always been worrisome is much of what happens to the rest of the country starts in California and moves eastward. I don’t understand how anyone who has any sense remains there. Oregon is a fine State as well…much of Idaho….but one can’t beat the weather of CA.

        Agreed. When I first drove cross country in my VW I was taken aback by its natural beauty. My favorite hang out though was the Pasadena Bookstore on Colorado Blvd. Back then one could even visit the Griffith Observatory or walk on Sundet Strip with the expectation of returning home alive. But surely the drugs the crime the and the broken streets of today are preferable. Ask Jerry Moonbeam….

    Kimberly Clark has changed the name of its Man Size Kleenex to Extra Large due to pressure from organized left wing outrage claiming gender bias. What’s next?
