Re-Think Your Drink!
Drink Water and Low-Fat Milk Instead of Sweetened Drinks!
What drinks do you like? This week we learned through the Choose Health: Food, Fun, and Fitness curriculum to choose healthier drinks!
Did you know that a 20 ounce bottle of soda has 16 teaspoons of sugar in it? Fruit-flavored drinks, lemonade and iced tea have almost as much! Drinking too much of these is easy, and can lead to weight gain. Even 100% juice is easy to over-do. Instead, we encourage to drink water and low-fat milk! Or make your own fruit smoothie like we did!
All you need is:
- 3 cups (12oz) strawberries or other frozen fruit
- 2 cups fat-free milk
- 1 large banana
- 3/4 cup low-fat yogurt (vanilla or plain)
Put everything into the blender and drink away!
