WATER WEDNESDAYS AT GEMS
With upcoming events focused on health and nutrition, we at Harlem Gems are doing our part in the fight against obesity by introducing “Water Wednesdays”. Every Wednesday everyone is encouraged to only drink water throughout the day instead of juice or other beverages.
Consuming beverages high in sugar has been linked to diabetes, tooth decay and obesity in young men and women. We think that devoting one day a week to only water would jump start healthier eating habits for those that are not accustomed to the proper daily intake, and reinforce the benefits of drinking water for others.
WAY TO GO GEMS!
