Sugary beverages contribute excess energy to the diet, cause tooth decay, obesity and diabetes. Reducing excess consumption is an international public health policy priority.

However, the effects of these policies in terms of substitution with other beverages are largely unknown.

This study will investigate consumers’ substitution of water, artificially-sweetened beverages and fruit juice for sugary drinks, and make recommendations for public health policy.
