Challenge Info

HOW THE CHALLENGE WORKS

Once you create an account you will have access to the Count Your Cubes 4-week calendar where you can track your sugary drink consumption and view your weekly sugar cube totals.

Week 1: Don’t make any changes to your drinking habits. Simply enter the sugary drinks you consume each day.

Weeks 2 to 4: Your goal is to make healthier beverage choices. Each week, try to consume fewer sugar cubes than you consumed in week 1.



CREATE A TEAM

This is a great option for workplaces, sports teams and schools. After you create your account, go to the Count Your Cubes calendar and you will see an option to ‘Create a Team’. By creating a team you will become the Team Captain, which will allow you to select the team challenge start date and invite and manage team members.

All team members will be able to see weekly sugar cube totals for the entire team. To respect the privacy of individual team members, individual sugar cube totals will not be viewable by other team members (including the team captain).



TEAM PARTICIPANTS

You can join a team by receiving an invitation by a Team Captain. This email will ask you to login or create an account. Be sure to check your junk mail if you can’t find your invite!

Once you login, you will see an invitation located above the Count Your Cubes calendar. You can only participate on one team, so once you accept an invite you will no longer be able to create your own team or join another team. Your start dates will be set by the Team Captain. If you want to be removed from a team, contact your Team Captain.



ADD A FAMILY MEMBER

This is a great option for parents or individuals who want to track sugary drink consumption for their children or other family members. After you create your account, go to the Count Your Cubes calendar and you will see an option to ‘Add a Family Member’. Once you add a family member to your account, you will be able to access their Count Your Cubes calendar and input their sugary drink consumption.

Family members linked to your account are not required to create their own account and as a result cannot participate on teams.
