The increasing consumption of sugary drinks is a major factor contributing to the global obesity epidemic. Consuming sugary drinks also increases the risk of other health conditions such as type 2 diabetes, heart disease, gout and dental decay.

Sugary drinks contribute over a quarter of the total dietary sugar consumed by children in Aotearoa New Zealand. Despite efforts to restrict the availability of sugary drinks in schools, 73% of students were still able to buy sugary drinks on school grounds.  

In partnership with the New Zealand Dental Association (NZDA), Te Hiringa Hauora | Health Promotion Agency developed these infographic posters to illustrate the amount of sugar in drinks commonly consumed by children and young people in New Zealand, and to promote water as the best choice.
