Over many decades Latin America has been experiencing a shift in dietary habits, due in part to an overconsumption of sugary, processed foods- as well as an increase in sugar sweetened beverage consumption. Many sugar sweetened beverage companies have extensive marketing campaigns in this region therefore promoting increases in intake. This increase in intake is contributing to negative health outcomes including type 2 diabetes and decaying oral health. A comprehensive literature review was completed to examine the various marketing strategies used by sugar sweetened beverage companies to promote intake as well as the political tactics used to deter consumption. The purpose of the review was to provide a foundation for future research related to determining interventions to deter sugar sweetened beverage intake in Latin America.
