  • A 12 oz. can of soda has about 40 grams of sugar. That’s equal to 10 sugar packets.
  • If you replaced one 12 oz. can of soda (150 calories) each day with a glass of water, in a year would shave off:

    • 54,750 calories
    • 14,600 grams of sugar
  • Eating the daily-recommended amount of fresh fruits and vegetables can help prevent cancer and cardiovascular diseases like high blood pressure, stroke, and heart attack. (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention)
  • A batter-fried chicken breast (3.5 oz. serving) has about 260 calories. A grilled chicken breast (3.5 oz. serving) has only 148. (USDA Food Composition Database)
