Rethinking our drinks at school

Rethink Your Drink is a public health initiative, led by the California Department of Public Health, to encourage healthy drink choices among low-income Californians, educate people about which drinks have added sugar, and to make known the links between consuming sugar-sweetened drinks and health problems. “After resisting temptation all day on my day off yesterday, I was able to make it through the entire school day on Tuesday without having an urge to drink any sugary beverages. Maybe, that is because sugary beverages of any kind are not allowed in classrooms.” Youth reporters talk about the unexpected challenge of avoiding sugary drinks all day at school, on Coachella Unincorporated. (Reporters gave an update at the end of the sugary-drink fast).
