The Beverage Guidance Panel was assembled to provide guidance on the relative benefits and risks for health of various categories of drink. Initiated by the first author of this article, the Panel’s purpose was to attempt to systematically review the literature on beverages and health, and provide guidance to consumers; and to develop a deeper dialogue among the scientific community on beverage consumption patterns. The Panel aimed also to highlight the great potential of changing these as a way to improve health. The authors describe the Beverage Guidance System and call for government-level measures to be taken to reduce the amount of calories people consume in beverages.
