Promote water

Install water points and promote drinking water as the number one drink.

  • Make sure everyone at your venue or workplace has access to free drinking water.
  • You can create a water fountain by connecting a dispenser to the mains water supply.
  • Or simply make sure there is a fresh jug of water on every table at your school, club or restaurant.
  • Promote water instead of sugary drinks. For instance, you could hold a ‘water week’.

Sugary drinks are the largest single source of sugar for children and teenagers. They offer no nutritional benefits to a nation already suffering high levels of obesity-related diseases and dental decay.
