Abstract

[Extract] More than 75% of young Australian adults consume sugar in excess of World Health Organization guidelines, with more than half of that coming from sugar‐sweetened beverages (SSBs), particularly soft drinks, sports drinks and energy drinks.1 As consumption of SSBs contributes to weight gain, diabetes and dental caries,2 public health and community actions are needed to reduce SSB consumption in this population. There is growing recognition that enhancing the healthiness of the food environment by implementing policies that limit the sale of unhealthy products, and replacing them with healthier options, is critical in improving consumer choice.3 Universities are particularly important settings, as large proportions of young adults spend substantial amounts of time at these locations. Yet few studies have assessed the availability of SSBs on Australian university campuses and whether universities can implement policies to reduce their availability.
