With impending rough winter weather on its way to our nation's capital, we're hunkering down and getting ready for at least one morning of limited mobility.

So, in preparation of winter weather here and around the country don't forget to stock up on essential foods and beverages. Our member companies provide myriad beverage options to keep you hydrated, whether you're stuck inside or shoveling snow. Hydrating liquids such as bottled water, 100 percent juice, sports drinks and ready-to-drink teas are essential to staying healthy.

After the storm blows over though, you can bet we'll be right back out there being active. Because we understand that balancing the calories we consume from all foods and beverages with those we burn through physical activity and exercise is the key to maintaining a healthy weight.
