Increase awareness of the types of drinks that include added sugar and the consequences of drinking beverages with added sugar by encouraging parents to choose water or low-fat milk instead of sugary drinks for their young children.
Results:
Ads were developed in partnership with a Community Consultant and adjusted according to feedback from focus groups.
