There’s no other way to say it: soda/pop is one of the unhealthiest things you can put into your body.
Large amounts of sugar, caffeine, carbonation, acids and other harmful chemicals are pumped
into each can, bottle, or fountain drink. Even though a child’s metabolism is much better than an
adult’s, there are many better drinks than soda. Let’s look at some…

4 Great Alternatives To Soda

Soda has almost no nutritional value compared to other drinks. If you want your child to grow up big and strong, soda really isn’t the best choice. Here are 5 great alternatives to soda that your kids should be drinking instead:

Chocolate Milk
If your child has no lactose intolerance issues, milk, and especially chocolate milk, are a great
option to be drinking. Chocolate milk is a tasty option that contains a bevy of vitamins and
minerals including calcium, protein, vitamin D/A/B12, potassium, magnesium, and zinc.
Chocolate milk is an inexpensive and available option compared to soda. Also, making chocolate milk is just a fun activity for kids to do.

Healthier Juices
Another great beverage choice is fruit juices! However, there are certain “juices” that are more
sugar and sweetener than actual fruit — Kool-Aid just to name one example. Apple, orange, and
cranberry juices are great sources of vitamins and minerals that don’t have any carbonation or
harmful chemicals. Many doctors and health websites like ThriveMD would approve healthy
juices over soda.

Different Types Of Tea
Tea might be thought of as an adult drink, but that’s not always the case! Teas can contain
many antioxidants and other helpful nutrients depending upon the type. There are so many
options of tea that things will never get boring: green tea, sweet tea, black tea, chai tea, and
many more. In regards to sugar, you can choose whether it’s sweet or unsweet tea. The former
is technically not as healthy as the latter but it’s still much better than soda is.

Lemonade
When life gives you lemons, drink that instead of soda! Lemonade is a great source of vitamin
C, potassium, and vitamin B6. Yes, there is sugar in lemonade, but you can control how much
goes into a serving! Also, the ingredients are pretty simple: water, lemons, and sugar. Make
sure that it’s not too pulpy! Most kids won’t like the texture! To go with those tasty beverages,
here are some fun autumn recipes for children.
