Workplaces

Workplaces can have a positive influence on their employees' health by limiting the availability of sugary drinks and promoting the consumption of healthier drink options.

Sugary drink consumption is a contributor to obesity and increases the risk of type 2 diabetes and tooth decay.  In the long term, this can result in increased absenteeism and can impact productivity.

Swapping sugary drinks for low or no-sugar options is an easy way for employees to help improve their health.

Toi Te Ora – Public Health Service supports workplaces to become sugary drink free.
