Sugary drinks include more than just soda

Posted on Oct 12, 2009 by Maggie LaBarbera

Sugary drinks are a concern because often kids will drink them instead of drinking fluids that will help their body:

  • water to hydrate the body
  • milk or lactose free milk products that provide much needed calcium
Sugary drinks are also high in empty calories. When you hear the word sugary drink, we think of soda.

But there are other drinks that you may not realize also fall into the category of "sugary drinks."

Here is a list of drinks that are high in sugar:

  • Soda
  • Fruit juice drinks  (not 100% fruit juice)
  • Energy drinks
  • Sports drinks
  • Flavored sugar drinks
  • Powdered drink mixes with sugar added
  • Smoothies made with added fruit juice or made with whole yogurt
  • Milkshakes
  • Creme coffee drinks

My son is almost 9 months old and I feel like I haven't gotten to watch him grow up. I had him and went back to work after four weeks and he has been with a nanny ever since. I work 6 days a week and my husband does as well. We work at <a href="" rel="nofollow">Narconon drug rehab</a> and with the problem int he US today, we can't afford to take off any. How can I manage my time more so that I don't feel like I am missing out on my sons childhood?

Children have preferences for aerated drinks and juices and it is very difficult to revert their taste.Even when we keep the consumption low and restricted in the home...outside in friends homes etc it gets impossible.
