Schools: Water

Make water easily accessible at your school.

Water is an essential nutrient – having it easily accessible is the first step in promoting healthy beverages in your school. According to the National Policy & Legal Analysis Network to Prevent Childhood Obesity, drinking water has been shown to improve students’ readiness to learn by increasing hydration and cognitive function. Encourage your students to make water their first beverage choice.

Here are some ways you can be sure water is accessible at your school:

  • Ensure free sources of water are easily accessible throughout your school
  • Speak with your vending operator to ensure water is available, placed in prominent positions and frequently stocked
  • Perform regular maintenance on all water fountains and replace/update water fountains where needed

Make your commitment to implement this policy change in your school. Download the pledge form today!
