Switch to Water Challenge: Kick start a healthy summer

We need water for hydration – not sugary drinks. Switching your sugary drinks to water is a great first step towards a healthier you!

Switch to water as it:

  • is naturally the best way to rehydrate;
  • has no calories;
  • is non-acidic;
  • is 100% natural; and
  • is fresh, free and readily available on tap.

The Switch to Water challenge is all about switching your sugary drinks to water for 30 days – starting one day between 1st and 15th November 2019. Take the challenge and kick start a healthy summer!

This challenge helps you to set a realistic goal to reduce the amount of sugar you consume. The aim of this challenge is to build better habits, with water becoming your drink of choice over time.

It is easy to take the Challenge. Simply sign up and commit to switching your sugary drinks to water for 30 days.

Adults can choose to take the challenge on their own or as part of a workplace team. Kids can take the Challenge by registering as a school team.
