According to the findings, nearly all Southwesterners polled (97%) are looking to incorporate healthful behaviors into their daily lives, including maintaining a healthy diet by eating more fruits and vegetables (67%) and switching from soda to sparkling water (21%).

Making the decision to live a more nourishing life is easy, but sticking with it is key! Ninety-two percent of consumers in this area believe forming healthy habits should be simple and convenient, while 96 percent believe it should be enjoyable and fun. Once new habits are routine, expect to see Southwesterners continue with the positive changes, as they reported that overcoming one bad habit is all it takes to motivate them to overcome others (89%).

"Based on our survey, consumers are seeking alternative beverage options to make healthy lifestyle decisions," says Carolina Rodriguez, Senior Brand Manager, Nestle Waters' Regional Spring Water Brands. "The new 'Nature's Fix' campaign aims to communicate the natural attributes of Ozarka Brand Sparkling Natural Spring Water. It takes a positive and humorous approach by introducing forest creatures who work together as a team to get people 'hooked' on a refreshing beverage that has no sugar, caffeine or artificial ingredients."

Sweetened caloric beverages can contribute to excess weight, but Ozarka Brand Sparkling Natural Spring Water has zero calories and offers the refreshment consumers crave without any unwanted baggage. Nestle Waters' Ozarka Brand has the perfect solution: apply one simple change to your daily diet by replacing caloric beverages with Sparkling Natural Spring Water and get hooked on something good.

The "Nature's Fix" campaign will be supported primarily online, with Facebook as the hub where consumers will have the chance to watch five different video executions featuring the forest creatures' adventures, join the "1-Step Program" to get hooked on something good and score a coupon. Through banner ads on sites such as Yahoo.com, MSN.com, TheKnot.com and Monster.com, search efforts on Google, Yahoo and Bing and heavy video advertising on prime websites such as Hulu.com, this campaign will be highly social and viral.
