From sport drinks to pop to fruit “punch”, sugar-sweetened beverages are everywhere. To help kids kick this liquid-sugar habit, the BC Pediatric Society and the Heart and Stroke Foundation are launching an elementary school educational program. It includes innovative resource materials and a teacher-friendly learning module. By teaching kids why it is important to drink less sugary drinks, the initiative complements BCHLA's other efforts to reduce unhealthy choices in schools. The goal? When kids are thirsty, they reach for healthier thirst-quenchers.
