Rethink Your Drink

NEOP utilizes the Rethink Your Drink campaign to spread the word on healthy alternatives to sugary beverages. CA Department of Public Health cites studies showing that sugary drinks contribute to increased risk for certain chronic diseases such as type 2 diabetes and heart disease. Check out some great resources on sugar sweetened beverages, recipes and come to NEOP's Rethink Your Drink presentations!
