Water: The Healthy Choice

Hi! My name is Anya and I’m a junior at Tabb High School. I have been a member of Y Street for one year. This year I am focusing on the Rev Your Bev campaign which is all about promoting water as the #1 beverage of choice. Frequent consumption of sugary beverages can lead to Type 2 diabetes, heart disease, kidney disease, and tooth decay.  

Rev Your Bev works with schools across Virginia to promote water and raise awareness. Since kids are still growing and learning we want to encourage them to adopt healthy behaviors. When youth are aware of the health benefits of drinking water they will be more likely to choose water. This campaign is so important to me because my family has a history of diabetes and heart issues so I’m doing my best to lead a healthier lifestyle and encourage others to do the same.  

My goals for this year are to involve more of my friends, participate in Rev Your Bev events to educate others, and drink more water myself. I hope students at my school will take the time to listen to this campaign and think about what we’re saying because it really is important. And besides, drinking water is fun AND healthier for you! Did you know you can dress up your water by adding different types of fruit?! 

Visit revyourbev.com to learn more about the campaign and different fruit-infused recipes to try.
