7. Sweetened Drinks Like Fruit Juice
Kids love sugar. Sugar is really bad for kids. Sports drinks, fruit juice, sodas… all those yummy drinks with bright colored labels and targeted advertising should never be consumed by children.
Even 100% fruit juice is not healthy. Fruit contains a lot of sugar as well as fiber and nutrients. When it is juiced, you lose the fiber and many of the other nutrients. What you keep is the sugar.
Sugar causes dental decay, adds the pounds, and is linked to behavioral issues.
