Did you know that 20 percent of American youth, ages 6 to 19, don’t drink any water on a given day? When access to drinking water is readily available to most, why isn’t it their first choice to stay healthy and hydrated? Are we simply unaware of water’s many benefits? Are we drowning in misinformation? Does advertising muddy our choices?

Our guests dive into these questions and help us get our heads above water. They discuss the important role that drinking water plays in a healthy lifestyle, why many minority teens feel that water just isn’t for them, and what we can do to end discrimination in hydration and make drinking water the cool choice for kids.
