Kids are drinking almost two cans of soda a day. Cutting out just one can a day can result in about 15 pounds a year. That is a small step that can make a healthy difference.
Sugary drinks are those with added sugars during processing. 100% juice has natural sweeteners derived from fruit. Because there is no sugar added, it is not considered a sugary beverage.

Sugary Drinks to Limit:

Sports drinks
Fruit drinks/punch (that are not 100% fruit juice)
Sweetened iced teas and coffee drinks

By replacing soda with water, fat-free or 1% milk, and 100% fruit juices, you can provide your child with the vitamins and minerals they need to grow up healthy.

Recommended Drinks by Age:

For children aged 12 to 23 months - whole milk (or nondairy beverages like, soy, rice, or lactose-free milk with medical permission)
For children 2 and up - water or seltzer water with no added sweeteners, fat free or 1% milk and 4 ounces (half a cup) of 100% fruit juice.

Healthy Drink Ideas
Here are a few quick and easy ideas to add flavor without adding too many calories:

Fruit and low-fat yogurt smoothies
Water with lemon, lime or orange slices
Seltzer water with strawberries or cherries
Unsweetened teas and lemonades
Fruit punch made with seltzer, 100% fruit juice, and fruit slices

The abstract usually has a slight amber blush but this was absolutely brown. I consistently add a bit of blush aliment gel to the abstract for color. But my girls had put the amiss lid on the amiss color. So my abstract this year is a abysmal amethyst brown.
