    Rethink Your Drink

    This month, make it a goal to drink more water to stay hydrated and healthy! What you drink is as important as what you eat. Sugary drinks (soda, energy drinks, coffee drinks, and sports drinks) add more sugar to our diet than any other food or beverage source. The added sugar in these drinks provide extra calories without extra nutrition. Drink water!

      • “Rethink Your Drink Day is a Statewide Day of Action in California to raise awareness about the health effects of sugary drinks and promote the benefits of drinking water."
      • “Sugary drinks (soda, energy drinks, coffee drinks, and sports drinks) add more sugar to our diet than any other food or beverage source. The added sugar in these drinks provide extra calories without extra nutrition. The added sugar from these drinks may contribute to tooth decay, increase the risk of obesity, and increase the risk for type 2 diabetes and heart disease."
      • “Drinking soda almost doubles the risk of tooth decay and cavities in children. The acid from soda erodes tooth enamel, and the sugar feeds bacteria that cause tooth decay."
      • “55-75% of our bodies are made up of water. Water helps us maintain our blood, muscle, body fat, and bones. Every cell of our bodies depends on water to function normally."
      • “Water is the easiest and most effective way to get hydrated. Everyone should try to drink 8 – 12 cups of water every day. Just take it one day, one drink at a time."
      • “Remember to bring your refillable water bottle to stay hydrated with refreshing water from the FloWater station or any tap or water fountain!"
