Sugary Drink Can

They're cold, cheap and tempting but what frozen drinks don't advertise is the obscene amount of sugar in them

Available in fast food outlets, petrol stations, sports centres and delis, you could be forgiven for thinking that at $1 a frozen treat is an affordable, fun, harmless way to treat yourself in the warmer weather.

Frozen drinks can easily contain half a week’s worth of sugar. Sugar that can cause toxic fat around your vital organs and lead to cancer, type 2 diabetes and heart disease.

Rethink Sugary Drink has partnered with LiveLighter to encourage Aussies to think twice about how much sugar they’re drinking.

Don’t be sucked in: there are other ways to cool down that won’t overload you with sugar.
