Our kids spend a lot of time in school, and it’s a great place to encourage healthy habits. Wisconsin legislators on the Joint Finance Committee are considering water refiling station legislation which would provide safe, free water by a non-fountain source, doubling the percentage of students who drink water on a daily basis!
Our schools should be a place where students can access drinking water throughout the day. Water makes children healthier by helping their muscles, joints, and tissues; improving their digestive system, and keeping their growing bodies hydrated.
Water access is part of creating a school environment that helps set children up for a healthy future. Help ensure that all kids have access to free and clean water in school by adding water bottle filling stations!
