Rethink Your Drink 

The Rethink Your Drink Program’s primary goals are to:

  • Educate Californians about healthy drink options,

  • Help identify drinks with added sugar, and

  • Make the link between consumption of sugar-sweetened drinks and health risks.

In this way, the program hopes to shift consumption toward healthier, more affordable beverages, like water.  At the same time, the Rethink Your Drink Program hopes to stimulate community-level partnerships and invite local environmental changes that will improve access, affordability and desirability of healthy beveragpes.
