These hot, summer days have us all reaching for a cool beverage, but what are you reaching for? Say it ain’t soda, sports drinks, energy drinks, or juice boxes. These types of drinks are packed with sugar and calories, and they’ve been linked to numerous health problems–not least of which are your teeth.
Think about tapping in to something better: choose water to quench your thirst. It has no sugar or calories, helping you maintain a healthy weight. It keeps you hydrated too, preventing headaches and fatigue. Plus, you can drink water almost anywhere!
The benefits of drinking water are endless. Not only is water the best way to quench your thirst, it has zero sugar and zero calories, helping you maintain a healthy weight. You can make it an easier option at home by placing ready-to-go containers of cold water in the fridge. For young kids, place non-breakable containers on lower shelves for easier access. Other ways water benefits you go on and on, including saving you lots of money!
Lastly, good ol’ water is always available, even in foods. About 20% of our daily water intake comes from food, especially fruits and veggies. What else? You can easily infuse your water with a little flavor from all kinds of natural sources. A whole world of drinkable water awaits!
