Welcome to Kick the Can!


You’ve arrived at THE place to find information about the dangers of sugar-loaded drinks.  Get tools to start a movement in your community, and change what kids and their families reach for when they’re thirsty!  
What are sugar-loaded drinks exactly? We’re talking: sweetened sodas, so-called “sports” drinks, iced teas, juice drinks, vitamin waters and energy drinks.  Beverages so cheap and easy to get, that kids are drinking way more than their fill. They’re getting the equivalent of over a dozen packets of sugar a day from their beverages alone! But together, we can stop Big Soda’s push to keep kids guzzling these harmful drinks which--science has proven--lead to obesity, preventable diabetes and tooth decay!
