New Videos show the Importance of Water

10.8.2015  New videos show the importance of water consumption to improve health.

For many families, life is a little too sweet.  Popular drinks like soda, sports drinks and chocolate milk have lots of sugar, which can lead to serious negative health outcomes like diabetes and dental caries.  In the videos below, families can  learn how to avoid the sugar in popular beverages by choosing to drink the most refreshing, inexpensive and life-sustaining drink in the world: water! So share the love, share the water.

The video is available in English and Spanish.  For more information about making water the first choice for thirst, visit Water In Schools, Sugar Science, and UCSF Center for Vulnerable Populations websites.

The production of this video was supported by the University of California, San Francisco Academic Senate Committee on Research, UCSF Center for Vulnerable Populations at San Francisco General Hospital, and the W.K. Kellogg Foundation. Animation developed by the Tremendousness Collective.

California Food Policy Advocates (CFPA) will continue to post resources that promote water and reduce the consumption of sugary drinks for Californians.  Learn more about CFPA’s Water in Schools Initiative here: link
