Join First 5 San Diego in our efforts to give every child a healthy start. Our goal is to increase the number of restaurants in San Diego County that offer healthy choices for young children. Today, nearly 1 in 3 preschoolers are obese or overweight. Healthy eating and activity for children and their families is an important step in making our community happy and healthy. With busy schedules, families are eating out more often; spending nearly 50% of their food budget in restaurants. This often makes it difficult for parents to give their children healthy options. First 5 San Diego needs your help to give parents healthy menu choices. You can easily do this with existing ingredients and menu items you already have available.
