Be Soda Free in Tennessee This Summer!

The Robertson County Health Department is pledging to be Soda Free this summer — and you should too! Find out below how you can participate.

INTRODUCTION

Join us for the Robertson County Health Department’s second annual Soda Free Summer beginning June 1, 2018.

With obesity, diabetes and heart disease on the rise, it’s important that we make a change today. Sugary drinks are the #1 added source of sugar in our diet. By making the pledge to drink water instead of soda, you are decreasing your risk of obesity, diabetes, heart disease, cancer and oral health problems.

It’s time to break the cycle and get healthier now! Sign up before June 1st to be eligible to attend the Soda Free Summer Celebration at the Springfield YMCA on July 28, 2018 and have the chance to win awesome prizes!
