According to the CDC, approximately one in four kids does not drink any water on a given day. Drinking water is one of the easiest ways to improve overall health and well-being and helps you have more energy and better focus. The campaign kicked off in Watertown, WI encouraging Americans to "Drink Up”. It's a simple action that everyone can take. Mrs. Obama led a toast to water followed by an array of festival-like water games at Watertown High School. Visit the Drink Up web site to learn more about the initiative: www.YouAreWhatYouDrink.org. And, share photos or videos of you drinking water on Instagram and Twitter using the hashtag #DrinkH2O.
