Quit swimming in sugar!

"Choose water over sugary drinks”

- Katarina Roxon, Paralympic Swimming Gold Medalist

Finishing strong means starting strong, and that means eating a variety of healthy foods and hydrating the right way with water instead of sugary drinks. Other healthy drink choices include white milk, unsweetened plant-based beverages (like plain soy beverage) or unsweetened coffee or tea. Take it from Paralympic Swimming Gold Medalist Katarina Roxon – quit swimming in sugar and you’ll feel happier and healthier for it!

Eat a variety of healthy foods.

“Staying healthy is all about what you put in your body”

- Carl English, International Basketball Star

Your health, growth, brain development, and energy levels have a lot to do with what you put in your body, so try to eat a variety of healthy foods each day and make water your drink of choice. Go for more fruits and vegetables, whole grains and proteins too, and remember International basketball star Carl English’s advice – what you put in your body is as important as what you don’t!

Power up with more fruits and vegetables.

“Being active and eating well go hand in hand”

- Liam Hickey, Multi-Sport Paralympic Athlete

Whatever your goals are for today or for your future, being active requires fuel.. Try healthy foods like vegetables and fruits. Fresh, frozen or canned are all great. Try to drink less sugary drinks too! Like Paralympian Liam Hickey says, eating healthy is how you power up!

Healthy Me. Better Me.
