Hume H30 Challenge

What is the H30 Challenge all about? It’s about drinking more water and feeling better for it.

A new health campaign encourages Hume residents to swap sugary drinks for water for 30 days to show that a small change can start to make a difference to your waistline, wallet and your smile.

The H30 Challenge is an initiative of VicHealth that asks people to make a simple 30-day pledge to replace every sugary drink they would normally drink with water. The aim of the challenge is to help establish healthier habits, with water becoming the main choice of beverage in the long-term. 

Sugary drinks include sugar-sweetened soft drinks, energy drinks, fruit drinks, sports drinks, ready-to-drink iced tea, flavoured water and cordial.

Participants can join VicHealth’s H30 Challenge at any time convenient for them, for a 30 day period.
