Individuals will consume at least 25% less SSB at the end of this program by continuing to track their sugar intake.
The students will understand the impact that added sugars have on health and be able to list at least five facts about added sugar in the diet at the conclusion on the program.
The students will increase their nutrition knowledge by scoring at least 25% better on the post survey than the pre survey which will be provided at the start and conclusion of the program.
As a result of this program, high school students in NJ will understand the effect of SSB on chronic health, increased water consumption and ultimately decrease high-school obesity levels in the state after 5 years of implementation.
