The Healthy Kids Community Challenge
Introducing Theme 2: Water Does Wonders
All kinds of groups will be joining forces in our community to support the Water does Wonders theme. There will be awareness campaigns and new policies and programs, all aimed at making fresh drinking water easy to access in the places where kids spend time.
This theme also encourages kids and families to reach for water when thirsty. It’s the natural, healthy, and free choice. Other healthy options such as plain milk and fortified, unsweetened soy beverages are also encouraged.
