The American Heart Association in NH remains committed to increasing healthy beverage choices for children and families. Sugary drinks are the top source of added sugar in children's diets. Public policies, like reducing junk food marketing and limiting sugary drinks served with children's restaurant meals, can greatly help create an environment where the healthy choice is the easy choice. Lawmakers and children's health organizations will continue to discuss public policy solutions to protect children from the health risks caused by consuming too many sugary beverages.
