hold the sugar please!

In support of its mission to improve the health status of all children and promote the value of health and well-being for patients, families and employees, Dayton Children’s Hospital will stop selling sugar-sweetened soda and sports drinks at all of its locations, effective May 1, 2014.

Patient families are still able to bring their own sugar-sweetened beverages. The hospital will have some flavors of sugar-sweetened beverages for patients when medically necessary.
