The Challenge
The Switch to Water Challenge is all about switching your sugary drinks to water for 30 days. Yes, it is as simple as that! This Challenge helps you to set a realistic goal to reduce the amount of sugar you consume. The aim of this Challenge is to build better habits, with water becoming your drink of choice over time.
It is easy to take the Challenge. Simply sign up and commit to switching your sugary drinks to water for 30 days. To make it fun the NZDA has setup three categories – Individuals, Workplaces and Schools. Adults can choose to take the challenge on their own or as part of a workplace team. Kids can take the Challenge by registering as a school team.

You can start the 30 days challenge anytime between 1 and 9 November. The 30 days challenge period commences on Thursday 1st November 2018 and ends after 30 days of taking the challenge.
