KITCHENER —
Museums in the heart of kidina will no longer sell bottled water.
Instead, people are invited to fill reusable bottles at the new gas station located throughout the museum.
A hydration station has been installed and two more will be added soon.
\"We encourage every visitor to bring their own reusable water bottles,\" said museum spokesman Jenna Van kravelen . \".
\"It fills up quickly, so it\'s easy to use even for young children.
\"These stations have been donated as part of the Community Challenge for healthy children in the Waterloo area, and 45 communities in Ontario are carrying out a provincial-funded initiative, it aims to promote physical activity and healthy diet for children and their families.
Van Klaveren says it is a \"natural move\" that is expected to spread across the community and encourages more people to buy tap water in bottled ways. \"It\'s exciting.
\"It\'s a big step,\" she said.
Soon, the museum will display the \"blue W\" decal.
The grassroots campaign, starting with Guelph, aims to promote municipal tap water as a healthy, convenient alternative to buying bottled drinks.
Organizations that offer free tap water can register and add to the map on the website bluew. org.
The restaurant attached to museum B is a registered blue W space that serves tap water at the dining table and never sells bottled water.
At present, the museum\'s snack bar will still sell juice, but plans to phase out in the next few months.
\"We want to reduce this to further encourage healthier options,\" Van Klaveren said . \".
Before the museum prepares the water dispenser for thirsty customers, the gas station also has a fountain and a nozzle that can be easily replenished with fresh and cool water.
\"It\'s a lot easier than our previous water dispensers,\" Van kravelen said . \".
The museum sells reusable water bottles at the gift shop and plans to re-order the new ones soon.
The plan is to install a gas station around the museum.
The first is in the center of the cafeteria.
\"This is where families gather and eat the lunch they bring,\" Van kravelen said . \".
Children are encouraged to drink tap water and build healthy living habits, which is the goal of the current theme of the healthy children\'s community challenge \"Water has a miracle.
Public health nutritionist Carolyn trezkovski says they want to promote water as the healthiest choice to drink with the aim of reducing sugar consumption
Sweet drinks that lead to obesity, heart disease and type 2 diabetes.
Making local tap water more accessible, especially when people are out in the community, is an important part of this effort.
It is clean, free and sustainable.
More than 100 hydration stations were installed in schools in the area, not-for-
Profit daycare center, municipal facilities, entertainment center, community organization and library.
\"We are trying to focus on where children and families spend their time,\" Tereszkowski said . \".
Also this summer, look for a \"water carriage\" in the area to take part in public activities, a water truck with taps.
\"People can go to the water tanker and refill the bottle,\" she said . \".
The next theme of the healthy children\'s community challenge is fruit and vegetables.
The plan will include the installation of community gardens and food skills programs that will teach people how to cook with fruits and vegetables.
