According to a study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 43 percent of adults drink less than four cups of water a day, including 36 percent who drink one to three cups, and 7 percent who drink none. First Lady Michelle Obama is trying to change those statistics with her latest initiative.
Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move! Campaign is educating the nation on making healthier nutrition choices and the importance of physical activity, and she is hoping to educate everyone on the importance of drinking enough water as well.
“Since we started the Let’s Move! Initiative, I’ve been looking for as many ways as possible to help families and kids lead healthier lives. I’ve come to realize that if we were going to take just one step to make ourselves and our families healthier, probably the single best thing we could do is to simply drink more water,” said First Lady Michelle Obama. “That’s it – it’s really that simple. Drink just one more glass of water a day and you can make a real difference for your health, your energy, and the way you feel. So Drink Up and see for yourself.”
