Drink Up: The new campaign launched by Michelle Obama

13.9.13

The First Lady made a trip to Watertown, WI yesterday to launch the new 'Drink Up' campaign.

Drink Up is the latest effort in her 3-year-old Let’s Move campaign to get Americans living healthier lives. 43% of U.S. adults drink less than four cups of water every day and 7% of adults drink no water at all: a far cry from the eight 8oz glasses that have long been touted as the recommended daily amount. Even more worryingly, Drink Up says that a nearly a quarter of the nation’s children do not drink any water on a daily basis but instead meet their liquid needs with sugary drinks. The CDC says that simply eliminating sugary drinks can cut as many as 650 calories from a person’s daily caloric intake.
