World Water Day on March 22 reminded us of the importance of access to clean and safe water. Many organisations around the world celebrated this day by recognizing the need to encourage members of the public to make water their drink of choice.

“Water is essential for good health and has no sugar. It keeps us hydrated, energized, and alert,” said Deanna Moher, Healthy Kids Community Challenge Project Coordinator. “Choosing water over sugar-sweetened beverages and sports drinks is one of the best ways to reduce sugar intake for lifelong health.”

Research shows that sugar-sweetened beverages are the single largest source of sugar in people’s diets. Almost half of the sugar consumed every day comes from beverages, and too much sugar can lead to health problems and tooth decay. Studies also show that children who are used to drinking water at a young age are more likely to drink water later in life.

Bermuda Diabetes Association is encouraging the development of active and healthy lifestyles. Drinking water is essential to nurturing healthy choices.
