Policy Unsweetened: Tackling Sugar-Sweetened Beverages

January 19, 2016

Colin Pekruhn, Grantmakers In Health

Grantmakers’ interest in supporting healthy eating policies has grown over the past two decades and been rewarded with considerable progress. Nonetheless, the next phase of policy work brings new challenges, opportunities, and questions. To explore these issues, Grantmakers In Health (GIH) convened Tackling Difficult-to-Crack Healthy Eating Policies, a strategic conversation for funders, practitioners, and experts in Sacramento, California. The conversation covered several policy areas, including consumption of sugar-sweetened beverages, nutrition in child care settings, and incentivizing healthy eating. This article focuses specifically on sugar-sweetened beverage policies, covering themes that arose throughout the meeting.
