Lead by Example


Poster: You do so much to protect them. But maybe you never realized how much sugary drinks could hurt them 

Instill healthy drinking habits in your family by buying and drinking only healthy beverages. Talk to your children about the very real health effects of drinking sugary beverages. Let them know that sugary drinks can contribute to weight gain and that even young people can develop Type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and other serious health issues as a result of too much of sugar.

Make giving up sugary drinks a family decision. Help each other avoid unhealthy beverages and encourage each other to make smart choices.  Children and teens can lead the way! Visit FatSmack and #HydrationNation to learn more about promoting healthy beverages among youth.
