Stay Hydrated This Weekend!

July 22, 2016

The dog days of summer are upon us and this weekend is shaping up to be a scorcher in many regions of the country. While it’s always important to stay hydrated, it is even more critical on hot summer days.

Fortunately, America’s beverage companies offer a wide variety of beverage options to meet your needs for the day. Whether it’s a sports drink, a smaller portion size, water or a low- or no-calorie beverage, they’ve got something for everyone.

America’s beverage companies also make it easy to maintain your balance for the day when grabbing a drink on the go. They place clear calorie labels on every can, bottle and pack they produce and on vending machines.

Whether you’re playing sports outside or enjoying a relaxing pool day this weekend, remember to stay hydrated and safe!
