A Healthier Beverage leads To a Healthier You

What is a Healthy Beverage?

Healthy beverages are water, low-fat or fat-free milk, 100% fruit juice and any unsweetened drinks! Every once in a while it is okay to have an sweetened beverage like soda or a dessert coffee as long as you are dinking the healthy beverages the majority of the time. It is important to drink these healthy beverages because when you drink water you are hydrating your body, when you drink milk you are helping your body build strong bones, teeth and muscles, and by drinking 100% fruit juice you are improving your body’s immune system.
