No Sugary Drinks logo unveiled

October 12, 2016

The health group FIZZ has unveiled New Zealand’s first ‘no sugary drinks’ logo in Wellington yesterday.

It’s part of its aim to have a ‘sugary drink-free’ country by the year 2025.

Logo designer Bodo Lang says it will be used by schools, organisations and at events.

FIZZ hopes the logo will work similarly to “Smokefree” logo. When people see this logo displayed they will know only sugar-free drinks are available.

Sugary drinks are linked to a number of serious health problems including obesity, type-2 diabetes and rotten teeth.

The logo will soon be available on its website to download and use.

Who are FIZZ?
They are a group of researchers and public health doctors who have come together to advocate (support) for ending the sale of sugary drinks from New Zealand.
