Wen: State needs to follow Baltimore City, pass bill on healthy drinks for kids

Baltimore City Health Commissioner, Dr. Leana Wen

Baltimore City Health Commissioner Dr. Leana Wen has been very busy lately. Wen has been in and out of Annapolis frequently, urging state lawmakers to follow the lead of the Baltimore City Council and pass legislation that would  require restaurants with kid’s menus offer milk, 100% juice, or water as the default beverage options for those meals.

Dr. Wen talks with WEAA’s Julius White about the healthy drinks bill  and other issues—including state protections for the Affordable Care Act.
