Would you eat 10 teaspoons of sugar in one go? That's how much sugar is in a regular can of soft drink with about 6 teaspoons in a fruit juice box. Replace one sugary drink per day with a glass of tap water.
Tap water is best, so you and your family are doing well to avoid this in your diet. During warmer months you can try adding fresh fruit such as citrus or berries to your chilled water to quench your thirst.
At the end of a meal, instead of asking "Are you finished?" ask "Is your tummy full?". This helps your child pay attention to feelings of hunger and fullness.
It's not always easy but try to avoid shopping on an empty stomach. Try eating a healthy snack before leaving home.
Drinking tap water instead of sugary drinks will not only improve your health, it will save you money.
