Switch to Water Challenge

Switch to Water is all about switching your sugary drinks to water for 30 days. Yes, it's as simple as that! The aim is to build better habits, with water becoming your drink of choice over time.

It's easy to participate, simply sign up and commit to switching your sugary drinks to water for 30 days. 

To make it fun we have set up four categories – individuals, workplaces, schools, and whānau.

Adults can choose to take the challenge on their own, as part of a workplace team, and/or as a whānau with those they live with. Students can participate by registering as a school team, or classroom, as well as a family.
