Less soda. More milk.
Healthier kids—and parents, too.
Soda and other sugary drinks like sweet tea may taste pretty good to a lot of us, but once you see the amount of sugar they have, you’ll be saying “no thanks,” especially since there are so many other delicious thinks to drink, including flavored milk, 100% fruit juice and ice-cold water. Saving soda only for special occasions can cut lots of calories out of your family’s diet, reduce hyperactivity in your kids, and lead to well-rounded nutrition.
Low-fat milk, for instance, is packed with important nutrients for every member of your family—and many people don’t get enough. By being a good role model and offering better drink choices to your kids, you can set your family up to live healthier and happier. And remember, even 100% fruit juice has quite a lot of sugar, so try adding water to cut down on the sugar.
