Experts agree that being overweight or obese is a major risk factor for Type 2 diabetes. Eating or drinking too many kilojoules, including from soft drinks, can contribute to weight gain, which in turn increases the risk of diabetes.

A balanced lifestyle is key to successful weight management. Like all food and beverages, soft drinks with sugar can be consumed in moderation as long as people don’t consume them to excess.

For those who want to reduce their kilojoule and sugar intake, we offer a variety of great-tasting beverages with reduced, low or no sugar and kilojoules. It’s also why we offer many of our beverages in small pack sizes.

We provide information on how much sugar and how many kilojoules are in our beverages, so people can choose what makes sense for them and their families.

We recommend that anyone concerned about the risk of diabetes contact their doctor.
