Drink Smart

Reach for a tall glass of water, instead of sugar-sweetened drinks. Here are some simple ideas to make better beverage choices and be healthier:

  • Pass on sugar-sweetened drinks and choose water instead.
  • Drink 100% juice without added sugar – fruit juice is sweet and tastes great on its own!
  • Choose 1% or skim milk.
  • Make water exciting! Add a slice of lemon, lime, cucumber or watermelon, or try sparkling water.
  • Add a splash of 100% juice to water or sparkling water.
  • If you’re having soda or juice for a treat, choose the small size.
