April 25th was Rev Your Bev Day, a state wide initiative to raise awareness about the health benefits of drinking water. Commit to Be Fit (C2BF) Nutritionist, Amanda Grove, and C2BF Wellness Integration Specialist, Holly Jenkins, spoke to the elementary school students about fun, healthy ways to flavor their water. Students each had the opportunity to sample a cucumber and mint infused water to taste a flavorful alternative to sugary beverages. At the high school, Y-street sponsored a similar promotion, offering lemon/lime bubbly water and strawberry/orange water tastings. The students then posted stickers on the banner to vote for their favorite flavor.
Now in it's sixth year, Rev Your Bev Day is an initiative of the Virginia Foundation for Healthy Youth and Y Street.
