I'm a pediatrician at SFGH in SF. We are see so many kids that are so big/obese. As you know it's an epidemic. We want the proposal to include correct limits on calories!!! this is critical as it's not only healthy food, but a limit on the calories that will prevent and also improve obestity. We have a saying calories in....if not used in the energy requirements for the day, then the body will store them as fat. We also say...no juice, no soda, and no chocolate milk. Only water or mild for children!!! Thanks for listening! Clem Donahue MD SFGH/UCSF Dept of Pedicatrics [redacted]
