Group promotes water consumption


Reducing obesity can start with something as simple as a glass of water.

That’s the message from a coalition of local organizations, including the New Hanover County Health Department,New Hanover County Schools Child Nutrition Program, Smart Start of New Hanover County, Division of Child Development, and Coastal Horizons. The group’s “Rethink Your Drink” campaign urges adults and children to drink water instead of high-calorie and sugar-sweetened beverages like soda and juice.

For more information about the campaign or the coalition’s monthly meetings, contact Smart Start of New Hanover County at 910-815-3731.
