Updated National Scan of State SSB Policies Available


In February 2012, the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) published a 50-state scan of sugar-sweetened beverage (SSB) trends and policies. The February scan covered state, regional, local and institutional efforts aimed at reducing SSB consumption. The goal was to provide information to decision makers and citizens interested in public health policy and law.

In the six months following the February report, SSB proposals and initiatives around the country have continued to evolve and proliferate.  CDPHE is committed to reporting on SSB reduction efforts to support public health professionals, policymakers, CDPHE partners and Colorado residents concerned with healthy eating and active living. This updated scan supports this commitment.

Please review and share this Update - Sugar Sweetened Beverage National Trends and Policies and contact Chris Lindley or Susan Motika with questions or concerns.
