Healthy Beverage Initiative
Our UBC community members work and learn within a demanding, high-performance academic environment. Having access to nourishing food and beverages, and the necessary information to make healthy choices, helps them thrive. A Healthy Beverage Initiative is an important step towards changing our on-campus environment to better support their wellbeing.
Sugar sweetened beverages* are the single-largest contributor of added sugar in the diet. Recognizing this, the Food and Nutrition committee and all major food-provider stakeholders worked together with students, staff and faculty across the university to promote tap water consumption and reduce consumption of sugar sweetened beverages.
