Rethink Your Drink

The average American eats about 175 pounds of sugar a year, or roughly half a pound a day. The single biggest source of that sugar comes from sugary drinks. Extra calories from sugar leads to weight gain that can put people at risk for lifelong health problems such as diabetes and heart disease.

Coolers in the hospital’s Clock Tower Café and at Jazzman’s Café in the hospital’s main lobby sport signage that visually assists diners in selecting beverages that are, based on calories, better choices. In order to encourage healthier beverage choices and discourage options that contribute to chronic disease, beverages are designated as green, yellow or red. Green beverages are those under 50 calories; yellow between 50 and 150 calories; and red marks drinks with 150 calories or more. In order to prevent these health risks, replace soft drinks with water, seltzer, fruit juice, and low-fat/fat free milk.
