Do your kids drink soda? Do you? I stopped drinking it some time ago.
Ok, I’ll admit I’ll drink a Sprite now and then, usually if I am away from home and don’t have many other choices.
But its not good to drink it. Not good at all.
Its high in sugar and calories and low in nutrients.
Obesity and diabetes are two diseases that can result from too much sugar and excess calorie intake. Other possible health problems from drinking too much soda include caffeine dependence and bone weakening (from the phosphorus).
Even the sugar free and zero calorie stuff has its problems!
There is some real scary statistics concerning soda consumption – 56% of 8 year olds drink soda everyday and 60% of schools sell it!
Although there are now many schools are no longer selling it to kids.
If you have kids, do you let them drink it? Do you set a good example by not drinking it yourself? How do you keep kids from drinking it when you’re not around to stop them or they are too old to control what they drink?
