Add your name to urge the CEO of the following restaurants to support our children's health by eliminating sugar drinks from kids' meals: Bojangles Chicken 'n Biscuits, Buffalo Wild Wings, Hardee's/Carl's Jr., Chick-fil-A, Chili's, Olive Garden, Outback Steakhouse, P.F. Chang's, Panda Express, Popeyes, Red Lobster, Red Robin, Sonic, TGI Fridays, and Whataburger.
