Water Does Wonders!

Burlington is launching the Water Does Wonders campaign to encourage kids and families to drink water as a healthy alternative to sugar-sweetened beverages.

Water Does Wonders is the second phase of the Healthy Kids Community Challenge, which promotes healthy eating, physical activity and healthy lifestyle choices for children. The purpose of the Water Does Wonders theme is to motivate kids to drink water when they are thirsty. Water is essential for good health. It is also a simple, convenient, and low-cost option for quenching thirst.

Encouraging kids to stay active and healthy is part of the government’s plan to build a better Ontario through its Patients First: Action Plan for Health Care, which provides patients with faster access to the right care; better home and community care; the information they need to live healthy; and a health care system that is sustainable for generations to come.

Burlington is among 45 communities selected to take part in the Healthy Kids Community Challenge. For more information about the Healthy Kids Community Challenge, visit Ontario’s Healthy Kids Strategy plan.
