Healthy Alternatives...Drop The Soda, But Not The 'Pop'!
There's nothing more cringe-worthy than watching young children sucking back soda pop. While at the racetrack last month, I was shocked to see children as young as Big-A (age 6) drinking pop from 500mL bottles late into the night (my issues with young children being kept up past 10pm at a RACETRACK is another story...).
With summer just around the corner, there will be many more children hydrating with pop. The sad thing is that many parents allow this, ignoring the concequences that their child will see later in life. Childhood obesity and Type 2 Diabetes are on the rise, and sugary drinks are the main culprit.
