Finding nutritious drink options that your child will love is not always an easy task. This video provides a number of tips for choosing healthier drink options for your children. It is important for children to consume between two to three cups of low-fat milk per day in order to receive the necessary amount of calcium.
You may consider adding chocolate powder or syrup to their milk for added appeal—try not to exceed one tablespoon of flavoring in order to cut back on sugar. When it comes to juice, stick with 100-percent juice or watered-down juice boxes, but juice is full of sugar, increases risk of obesity and is bad for dental health. Check out this video to learn just how much juice your child should be drinking.
