Using SugarScience Materials

SugarScience has created a toolkit of graphics and multimedia materials to help educate the public about the health impacts of consuming too much added sugar. All messages have been vetted for accuracy by a team of scientists and are supported by peer-reviewed scientific research. Click here for details on our scientific review process. 

These materials are intended to be shared, so please print them out or share via email, Facebook or other social media with your school, health club or community organization.

Customizing Documents

The Resource Kit also includes original design files for nonprofit and public health organizations to download and customize with their own logos, to reach their constituents. Please note that any new or edited messages do not necessarily reflect the views of SugarScience and are the sole responsibility of the user.

If you do choose to customize one or more of these documents, please email us at to have your documents included in an online gallery as an example of how this Resource Kit can be used.
