Clean, accessible water is vital to the health of children, especially when it comes to reducing consumption of sugary beverages and keeping kids healthy throughout the school day.
The National Drinking Water Alliance (NDWA) is a national coalition of nonprofits, academic institutions, individuals and advocates who are working to ensure all children have access to safe and clean drinking water.
NDWA is working to ensure water safety issues, like what happened in Flint, are eradicated at the national, state and community levels, by developing legislation for tap water testing in schools and childcare sites. NDWA has not only urged the United States Department of Agriculture to add a water symbol to the My Plate graphic but also provides a hub of various water resources, including toolkits on encouraging water consumption, literature reviews on water access and consumption, and more.
Since February is National Children’s Dental Health Month (NCDHM), NDWA is promoting the theme, “Choose Tap Water for a Sparkling Smile”, promoting tap water with free posters in Spanish and English to be used for schools, childcare centers, or anyone wanting to promote water consumption!
