Take the Switch to Water challenge


As part of national Oral Health Day (2 November) the New Zealand Dental Association is challenging you to switch your sugary drinks for water for 30 days.

Switching sugary drinks to water can:

  • Switch off tooth decay
  • Switch on weight loss
  • Switch on health benefits
  • Switch on saving money

The Switch to Water Challenge helps you set a realistic goal to reduce the amount of sugar you consume. 

Once you have made the switch you can Tap in to Water everyday.

Challenge period

You can start the 30 days challenge anytime between 1 and 9 November.
