Are You Drinking Candy?

One of our most popular posters just got a new art update! 

Most people would never imagine that a beverage could contain as much sugar as several pieces of candy. And they would swear they never eat that much candy! But one large glass of sweetened ice tea or a large coffee drink can contain even more sugar than a soda and 15 lollipop equivalents of sugar. We updated this classic poster to have a new graphic twist and to use the common beverages found in many stores and restaurants.

1 tsp of sugar contains about 4 grams of sugar or the equivalent of sugar found in a small lollipop. 

The bottom of the poster contains better choices for beverages like water or unsweetened iced tea. The “lollipop scale” is ready to show them how many lollipops are in the big sweetened drink deals sold in stores and restaurants. 

The 2015 Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommends limiting added sugars to no more than 10 percent of daily calorie needs. That’s about 12 teaspoons (48 grams of added sugar) on a 2,000-calorie diet. But for kids — especially little kids, who may only need 1,200 to 1,400 calories per day — it’s even less.

This popular laminated poster is now in the healthy beverage health fair theme and it comes in two different banner sizes: 48×36″ or 24×62″ on a stand. It would go well with our “sugar math” poster.
