In 2013, the Childhood Obesity Initiative adopted two
overarching strategies to guide our work over the next three years:
reducing access to and consumption of sugary drinks, and increasing
safe routes to healthy places.
On September 26, 2013, the Childhood Obesity
Initiative held an event to engage partners in the overarching
strategy related to sugary drinks. Partners committed to take
action to reduce sugary drink consumption in the following four
commitment categories: promote smarter lunchroom strategies in
schools, make personal resolutions to reduce consumption, promote
healthy beverages through worksite wellness programs, and create
organizational policies that promote healthy beverages. This page
offers some resources to guide our partners and others to reduce
sugary drink consumption in these categories.
