Sweet Enough Water OnlyAccording to the Ministries of Health and Education sugary drinks are a significant cause of poor oral health and contribute greatly to childhood obesity and Type 2 diabetes. The Ministries also note sugary drink consumption is associated with problem behaviours and lowered academic achievement.

Nelson Marlborough Health is encouraging schools and sport organisations to join the Sweet Enough Water Only programme and adopt water and plain milk only guidelines. By joining, they are making a commitment to create healthy drink environments for our kids.

For more information about joining the programme please contact aaryn.barlow@nmdhb.govt.nz.   These schools and organisations have already got on board and are doing their best to create healthy drink environments for our kids:
