Let’s begin with an inspirational quote about water:
Water is the best thing you can put in your body
On an average day, a quarter of our liquid comes from our food.
Many foods high in water content are also low in calories and will help you maintain a healthy lifestyle.
Almost all food has some water in it, but fruit and vegetables are the most made of water.
Every year, on March 22, World Water Day is celebrated around the world.
The goal of this day is to promote a conscious approach to water and its immense importance to each of us!
