A Toast to the First Anniversary of Drink Up
September also marks the one-year anniversary of the Drink Up campaign launched by the Partnership for a Healthier America and First Lady Michelle Obama. Over the last year, Drink Up has encouraged millions of Americans to drink more water more often as a way to improve their health.
To date, the Drink Up message has been seen on more than 1 billion products, and more than 60 companies and organizations have joined to support the movement to remind everyone that you are what you drink, and when you drink water, you Drink Up. We are excited that the movement is contributing to a shift in some behaviors, and we have seen water consumption and purchasing on the rise.
#EatSmart with the President's Council on Fitness, Sports & Nutrition
Last week, members of the President's Council on Fitness, Sports & Nutrition came to the White House to talk with kids and stakeholders about leading a healthy lifestyle through staying active and eating healthy. They joined youth ambassadors from the Alliance for a Healthier Generation and Fuel Up to Play 60 for a roundtable discussion on school nutrition and focused on the importance of eating smart to perform at their best in school and in life. The Council Members and kids took to social media to share why they #EatSmart.
We encourage you to join in and share why you #EatSmart on social media, and stay tuned for more to come from the President's Council Members!
