Hearty Health Tip: No More Than 1 Sugary Drink a Week!
Soft drinks, fruit juices in cans, tetrapacks and plastic bottles as well as energy/sports drinks and iced tea and other sugar-sweetened beverages (SSB) contain as much as 7 teaspoons of added sugar in every 8-ounce glass.
A can of soft drinks sized 12-fluid ounces contains 10 teaspoons of added sugar, or 150 calories!
No wonder SSBs are the #1 source of added sugars in our diet. This can hurt your health, raising the risk of diabetes, heart diseases, obesity and tooth decay.
Drop this unhealthy habit of taking sugary drinks.
And when you send your kids to school, have them bring water bottles boosted with flavors like cucumber, lemon or citrus fruits.
