Rethink Your Drink

Did you know sugary drinks are the #1 source of added sugar in our diets? Our collection of resources will inspire you to choose water and drink less sugar-sweetened beverages. Check out these tips from MyPlate.gov to get you started!

  • Drink Water: Drink water instead of sugary drinks. Regular soda and other sweet drinks usually contain a lot of added sugar which provides more calories then needed.
  • A Thrifty Option: Water is usually easy on the wallet. You can save money by drinking water from the tap at home or when eating out.
  • Water On The Go : Water is always convenient. Toss a reusable water bottle in your bag to quench your thirst throughout the day.
