Today almost one-third of children in the United States are obese or overweight. Many studies have demonstrated a link between obesity and the consumption of sodas and other sugar-sweetened beverages (SSBs). Many public health advocates see cutting down on the excessive consumption of SSBs as a clear obesity prevention policy strategy.
As such, ChangeLab Solutions has created a collection of resources for advocates and policy makers who want to address this issue. They have the resources you need for developing regulatory policies to address the availability of SSBs for children in your community.
