When you step into the grocery store, you make choices that will impact your entire family’s entire health. It’s astounding to think about how much is determined by the things that find their way into your grocery cart. We see a lot of patients struggling to find healthy beverages for their families. It’s difficult because some beverages might seem like a good idea, but they are actually going to cause more harm than good.
We are talking, particularly, about things like juice, sports beverages, and fruity waters with added sugar. These things seem like a good option for your family, but the sugar content makes sipping from these bottles a big problem for your smile. Water should be your family’s beverage of choice, but how do you convince them to give up their sweet drinks for plain water? Spice things up!
