  • It's an easy one to forget but try to take your own water bottle when you leave the house so you're not tempted to buy sugary drinks. Leave a spare bottle in the boot of your car for emergencies.

  • If you eat fast food, try to swap fries for a side salad, a sundae for a fruit salad and soft drink for tap water (take your own drink bottle!).

  • Would you eat 10 teaspoons of sugar in one go? That's how much sugar is in a regular can of soft drink with about 6 teaspoons in a fruit juice box. Replace one sugary drink per day with a glass of tap water.

  • Did you know that water makes up around 60% of your body weight? And if our brains don't get enough water, our ability to concentrate can decrease by 13 percent and our short term memory can drop by 7 percent? Drink tap water throughout the day, every day.
