SipSmart! Empowering Kids for Health

Juice, flavored waters, sports drinks and soda – all sugary drinks – could be bringing down your child’s health. Sometimes it’s hard for both parents to recognize what is and what isn’t healthy these days, with clever packaging and mixed messages in the media about what is good for the body.

CBS covered the story in Juice As Bad as Soda. Stories like this raise awareness and get us thinking, but what more? Enter SipSmart BC. Sip Smart! BC™ was created and developed by the BC Pediatric Society and the Heart and Stroke Foundation with funding from the BC Healthy Living Alliance. This educational program is all about teaching kids how to take action for thier own health beginning with making smart drink choices.

“Sugary drinks are everywhere, and too much sugar is not good for a child’s health. Sip Smart! BC™ is a new, educational program that helps teach children in grades 4 to 6 about sugary drinks and about making healthy drink choices. Sip Smart! BC™ was created and developed by the BC Pediatric Society and the Heart and Stroke Foundation with funding from the BC Healthy Living Alliance.”
