California's Healthy by Default Kids Meal Law requires milk or water to be the default drink offered with a bundled kids' meal, rather than, for example, a juice with added sugar or soda. Additionally, this law requires that the beverage pictured on the menu and the first options listed on the menu is an adherent healthy beverage. Sonali will be assessing whether fast food chains in California adhere to the Healthy by Default law through online ordering platforms including the restaurant platform (website or mobile app), Doordash, Grubhub and UberEats, and reasons for non-adherence.
