Week Three: Add One Healthy Beverage Each Day
- If you send your child to school with a sugary juice drink, switch to 100-percent fruit juice or 1-percent low-fat milk.
- A 12-ounce soft drink contains the equivalent of 10 teaspoons of sugar and about 150 calories. As an alternative, make your own fizzy creation of 100-percent fruit juice mixed with club soda or seltzer.
- Bring a plastic water bottle wherever you go for a quick thirst quencher. It will save you money and time when the kids say, "I'm thirsty."
