First Lady Michelle Obama is continuing her fight in making sure American’s children become healthier.
Mrs. Obama has partnered with the Partnership for a Healthier America to get everyone, especially children, to drink more water. The CDC recently published that one fourth of children do not drink water during the day. That definitely does not work for Mrs. Obama whose Let’s Move! program is big on exercising and eating plenty of fruits and vegetables.
Mrs. Obama wants people to know that it drinking water is just as simple as all other programs she’s helped mobilize:
“Since we started the Let’s Move! initiative, I’ve been looking for as many ways as possible to help families and kids lead healthier lives. I’ve come to realize that if we were going to take just one step to make ourselves and our families healthier, probably the single best thing we could do is to simply drink more water. That’s it—it’s really that simple. Drink just one more glass of water a day and you can make a real difference for your health, your energy, and the way you feel. So ‘Drink Up’ and see for yourself.”
It really is something so simple and we take it for granted. If we’re going to get our children drinking water more regularly, it certainly starts with adults. How often do you hear one of your peers say how much they “hate” drinking water? Meanwhile, they consume so much more than a normal “allowance” of juice or soda.
We’ll see if she comes up with any new creative campaigns to get the country on board with the new “Drink Up” initiative.
