Sugar counts, whether you eat it or drink it.

Here are the facts:
  • The average Canadian consumes 88 lbs. of sugar per year from all food sources1
  • 12% of adults and 7% of children consume 365+ soft drinks per year1
  • Soft drinks are the #1 source of sugar intake or Canadians aged 9-182

Overconsumption of sugar has been linked to obesity, and it’s no wonder! Countless packaged foods & drinks contain added sugar, and in many cases, people are taking in much more than they need.

Currently more than half of Canadian adults are overweight or obese.3 But we can all help to turn around by making one everyday choice.

This year, drink more water, less sugar.

Looking for the easiest way to reduce your sugar intake? Try swapping out your favourite sweetened beverages for delicious, zero-calorie filtered water.
