Water Does Wondershttp://adm.scdsb.on.ca/about-us/news/school-news/71Water Does Wonders<p>Sugary drinks are everywhere. Pop, fruit punch, energy drinks, sports drinks and many other drinks have a lot of sugar.</p><p>Too much sugar is not good for a child’s health. The extra calories in sugary drinks can add up quickly. This puts children at higher risk of high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes and cancer.</p><p>Together, we can drop the pop, drink water, offer better options, and create communities that sip less sugar.</p><p><strong>Join the movement! Contribute to healthier children and a healthier community.<br></strong></p><p><a href="http://waterdoeswonders.ca/">Take the Pledge </a><br><strong></strong></p>
