That
Whereas supporting the Whole Child is one of the strategic goals of the Cambridge Public Schools; and

Whereas excessive amounts of natural and added sugar are associated with early onset diabetes and childhood obesity; and

Whereas some CPS parents opt their children out of drinks served in CPS cafeterias that have high levels of natural or added sugar, but other parents do not know they have that option or do not realize that sugary drinks are served in CPS cafeterias; Therefore, the School Committee requests that the CPS Administration send beverage opt-out forms to all parents in their summer registration packets that inform parents that juices (though with no added sugar) and chocolate milk are served in CPS cafeterias and that they have the option to opt their child out of these beverages.
