The purpose of this document is to identify key policy recommendations to relevant settings that impact on the availability, marketing price, and knowledge of SSBs and ultimately the consumption of SSBs in New Zealand, particularly in youth. These recommendations will provide achievable goals to various stakeholders and settings of influence, aiming to reduce SSBs intake. The ideal outcome is that water and milk (unflavoured) become preferred beverage options for New Zealand children and adults. These goals align to the vision articulated by the advocacy group 'FIZZ' to achieve a Sugary Drink Free New Zealand by 2025...

FIZZ (which stands for fighting sugar in soft-drinks) is a new advocacy group started to reduce population consumption of sugar-sweetened soft drinks in New Zealand. The vision of FIZZ is for New Zealand to be sugary drink free by 2025. This means that sugar sweetened beverages will comprise < or = 5% of the total beverage market, and sugar free drinks will be the norm. In this paper, we outline the story of FIZZ: to reiterate why we believe the group is needed, reflect on what the group has achieved to date, consider what it aims to accomplish, and outline what methods it will seek to achieve these aims...

The Kelston Beverages Study was designed to increase awareness of the sugar content of sugary drinks, the poor health consequences that high intake of these drinks have, and inform on ways to reduce intake of students. The aims of this pilot study were to refine interventions and processes designed to raise awareness of the harms that sugar sweetened beverages (SSBs) have on health, and to reduce their consumption among the youth of a small West Auckland suburb. There were three arms to this interventional study, one in schools, another in community organisations (churches, sports clubs and community groups), and the final arm is in the local retail sector...

AIM: The primary aim of this study was to describe the carbonated beverage (soft drink) consumption patterns of New Zealand (NZ) youth and to investigate the influence that home availability of soft drinks had on their consumption. A secondary aim was to determine if there was an association between soft drink consumption and body mass index (BMI) or waist circumference. METHODS: Data from Youth '07, a nationally representative survey of the health and well-being of NZ youth, including 8,697 NZ students aged 13 to 17 years, were analysed...

COMPARATIVE STUDY
P A Metcalf, R R K Scragg, G Sundborn, R Jackson
OBJECTIVE: To compare dietary intakes, food servings, and cooking practices of Pacific ethnic groups with New Zealand Europeans. METHODS: Daily nutrient intakes were calculated from a self-administered food frequency questionnaire from a cross-sectional health screening study. Participants were Pacific (n=954) and New Zealand European (n=1.745) people aged 35 to 74 years. RESULTS: Total energy intakes in Samoan and Niuean men were higher than European men, while for women, total energy intakes were significantly higher in all Pacific ethnic groups compared to New Zealand European women...

BACKGROUND: Many studies examining population differences in soft drink consumption or the association it has with fatness have not included serving size in its assessment. It is not clear what effect this has on their findings and our study aimed to investigate this by comparing the relationships that days (serving size unaccounted for) and cans/day (serving size accounted for) of consumption have with ethnicity/country and fatness. METHODS: Daily nutrient intakes were calculated from a self-administered food frequency questionnaire from a cross-sectional health screening study...

INTRODUCTION: Pacific Islands Countries and Territories (PICTs) have some of the highest rates of obesity and diabetes in the world. Research has demonstrated a strong link between sugar-sweetened beverage (SSB) consumption and subsequent risk of overweight, obesity, dental caries and type II diabetes. To address the impact of SSBs on noncommunicable diseases, it is crucial to understand the level of SSB consumption in PICTs. METHODS: The volume of soft drinks imported and exported was requested from PICTs to estimate the litres of soft drink consumption per head of population...

BACKGROUND: Sweetened beverages are a major contributor to sugar intakes in New Zealand, yet little information exists regarding the retail environment and the characteristics of sweetened and unsweetened beverages available for purchase. AIM: Our aim was to assess the availability, price, serve size and sugar content of sweetened and unsweetened non-alcoholic beverages available for purchase in New Zealand supermarkets. We also review and summarise the evidence for policy options relating to beverage availability, price, serve size and sugar content...

Non-communicable diseases are a major problem in the Pacific Islands, with poor diets an important contributing factor. Available data suggests high levels of intake of sugar-sweetened beverages (SSBs) across the region, and particularly in adolescents. Due to concerns about the risks to health of high intakes, efforts have been made across the region to reduce the intake of SSBs. French Polynesia, Nauru, Cook Islands, Tonga and Fiji have implemented sales or excise taxes on SSBs to increase the price to the consumer...

The clinical manifestations of gout occur as a result of immune responses to monosodium urate crystals. Elevated serum levels of urate (hyperuricemia) are a prerequisite for the development of gout with reduced fractional renal excretion of uric acid (FEUA) an important cause. In New Zealand, Mãori and Pacific Island people have inherently raised urate levels with one consequence a higher prevalence of more severe gout. One characteristic metabolic effect of fructose, present in sugar-sweetened beverages (SSB), is raised urate from hepatic processing of fructose...

OBJECTIVE: The epidemic of unhealthy weight is now in its third decade. The multitude of initiatives designed to address this issue (globally) have predominantly been ineffective as the prevalence of unhealthy weight has continued to rise. Public health professionals have proposed an 'endgame' for tobacco smoking in New Zealand by 2025, which has received widespread support. Similarly, here, to control the prevalence of unhealthy weight, we consider whether a similar approach to tobacco is justified to restrict the intake of sweetened beverages...

In New Zealand, schools have been a battleground as a setting to address the obesity epidemic, with successive governments enforcing, and then repealing laws to ban junk food from canteen menus. Just what is considered 'junk food' remains controversial, but recently sugar sweetened beverages have become a target of public health groups. The adverse health consequences of their intake have been the principal arguments to reduce their availability. Here, we argue that the advantages of reducing intake of sugar in schools are very likely to lead to educational and other social benefits...

Pacific people (especially Micronesian and Polynesian) have some of the highest rates of obesity and diabetes in the world that largely developed since the introduction of western culture and diet. Recent studies suggest that much of the risk relates to the excessive intake of sugar (sucrose) and carbohydrates, leading to a type of fat storage syndrome (metabolic syndrome). Here we discuss some of the environmental. genetic and epigenetic reasons why this group might be especially prone to developing obesity and diabetes compared to other ethnic groups...

Rheumatic fever remains an important disease of childhood in New Zealand, despite increasing access and awareness of the need for preventive antibiotic treatment. Mãori and Pacific children have an incidence rate about 30 times and 70 times higher than European children, from annual notification data (77.7 per 100,000 for Pacific, 30.4 per 100,000 for Mãori, and 1 per 100,000 for European). In the early 20th century, a Canadian dentist, Weston A. Price, noted that 95% of children who presented with acute rheumatic fever also had advanced dental caries...
