My reaction after reading the article “McDonald’s to open near Tracy High” in last week’s Tracy Press was disappointment. Choosing healthy foods continues to be challenging for people in general, especially young people.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, we are eating ourselves into a diabetes epidemic. The International Diabetes Foundation says that “diabetes and obesity are the biggest public health challenge of the 21st century.”
It would be great if another Jamba Juice were built in Tracy — it’s a successful franchise and a much healthier option.
