We all know most young people need to drink more water. Many kids and teens are drinking far too many unhealthy sugary drinks instead of water, and numerous studies have shown all those extra calories are driving obesity. PreventObesity.net wants YOUR input!
Tell us what you think is the best way to convince young people to drink more water.
Is increasing water access in school the best strategy? Or do you recommend removing taxes on water? What about reducing the marketing of sugary drinks to kids? You tell us.
We’ll use your responses to craft future advocacy efforts in this important issue area. Your answers also will reach leading policymakers and advocates working in this space. Carter Headrick from the American Heart Association has promised he’ll talk about the responses when he leads a presentation at the upcoming National Soda Summit in Washington, D.C.
This is your chance to speak up and let policymakers know how we can encourage drinking water as a healthy alternative to our youth. Thanks for the help!
