How Your PTA Can Support Healthy Hydration
Healthy Hydration at Meal Times
Schools in the National School Lunch Program must make water available to students during meal times at no cost (Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act). Encourage students to use water foundtains or setup a water cooler in the cafeteria.
Healthy Hydration at School Events
Provide water at school events for students and their families. PTAs can offer it at no cost or at a lower cost than other beverages!
Healthy Hydration for Physical Activity
PTAs can work with school administrators to ensure students are hydrated before, during and after physical activity. Encourage teachers to allow students to break for water.
Healthy Hydration Display
Set up a display at PTA Events that shows fun, delicious fruit-infused water recipes. Also show the amount of sugar in sweetened beverages.
