Sugary drinks poster: You do so much to protect them, but maybe you enver realized how much sugary drinks could hurt them. 

Americans are consuming more and more sugar. Sugary beverages, like sodas, sports drinks, sweetened tea, coffee drinks, and energy drinks are the single biggest source of added sugar in our diets. Sugary beverages – also known as sugar-sweetened beverages (SSBs) are a source of extra calories, yet have no nutrients. Drinking too much sugary drinks can lead to obesity and other chronic diseases.  Through our Sugar Smarts campaign, we aim to increase awareness on the negative health effects of sugary beverages and provide options for healthier choices. Learn more about what you can do to educate yourself, your family, and your community.
