What might be the alternatives?
This is a very good question. First, we should not introduce these sugar drinks in our daily diet or in our children daily diet at all. If they do not know how they taste like they will not be tempted by them at all. Imagine what a sugar drink next to a hamburger that is also filled with sugars, can do to a kid. Nothing good that is for sure. Imagine if this becomes a habit what could happen. To be able to make this danger vanish you should be the main person to give an example.
So, you should be the one to eliminate sugars from your life. You can find many natural sugar sources in nature, with no additives, preservatives or colorants. One example is the fruits. If your kid wants something sweeter try mixing a banana or a bit of natural honey, bought from a reliable source and you can give him the best sweet drink possible. This way you will provide for him health in just one glass.
The main conclusion that you should draw from this article, is that sugar drinks are not good for your health. You should not consume them and if you do, you should do it occasionally. Children can become addicted to them faster than grownups so you should not give them such drinks at all. Considering that these days we are facing a very hyperactive generation of children you may start wondering why. They must be able to focus and to rest properly.
Sugar drinks will prevent that thing from happening. You do not want this for your kid, so why you should harm him instead of give him the best alternative possible. Sugar can be found in nature in any fruit or vegetable and you can be sure that nature gives us exactly how much we need. Extra sugar added can only damage our health.
