Earlier this month, the Stockton City Council passed an ordinance requiring either water or milk to be served as the default beverage in children’s meals.

This is the second law of its kind in the U.S., with Davis being the first to pass the so-called “healthy-by-default” rule. The ordinance — passed unanimously by the Stockton City Council — is the latest attempt at tackling the city’s childhood obesity and type II diabetes issues.
