Tap into water criterion

Tap into Water Everyday – and limit sweet drinks - aims to increase water consumption and reduce the consumption of sweet drinks.

Drinking water instead of sweet drinks provides hydration for concentration and learning and promotes healthy teeth.

Meeting the criteria:

Primary schools

To meet this criterion, Primary Schools need to have a strategy in place to encourage all students to drink water throughout the school day, especially during physical activity. Only water is permitted for drinking in class time.

Early childhood services

To meet this criterion, Early Childhood Services need to have drinking water available and accessible to children at all times. Drinking water is provided with each meal and snack.
