Be Careful Giving Sweetened Drinks To Your Children

Sweetened drinks are heavily marketed towards children. However, few if any of the drinks marketed for kids meet nutrition recommendations. In fact, they are a major source of excess calories and one serving often contains more than 50% of a child’s daily recommended sugar.

More than two thirds of fruity drinks marketed at children contain no actual fruit juice. Even if they did, it is suggested that kids should drink juice only in limited amounts and it should 100% juice. Experts even recommend that kids over the age of one should only be drinking water and milk.
