7.5.2016  Need resources to help get a water program off the ground? Check out the Water First Toolkit! This new resource will help you to design and implement activities and messaging to promote water intake at  various community sites.

Research shows that adequate water intake is important for children's health and development. Currently, over half of all children in the United States are inadequately consuming water. When schools and community sites provide drinking water as an alternative to sugary drinks such as soda, fruit drinks, and sports drinks, they promote overall health and development.

California Food Policy Advocates (CFPA) will continue to post resources that promote healthy beverage intakes for Californians.  Learn more about CFPA's Water in Schools Initiative here: link
