Encourage kid-friendly drinks

Make water, low-fat or fat-free dairy milk, or unsweetened seltzer the go-to options for your kids. Serve 100% juice only on occasion.

Compare food labels

Use the Nutrition Facts label when shopping for beverages. Check and compare calories, amounts of added sugars, and servings per container.

Cut coffee calories

Skip the whipped cream and chocolate or caramel drizzle. Go with low-fat milk and a sprinkle of cinnamon or nutmeg for a lower calorie coffee.

Grab a bottle and go

Carry a clean, reusable water bottle in your bag to fill up throughout the day. Tap water is easy to find.

Jazz up your drink

Perk up your plain water or seltzer water with lemon, lime, or orange slices. Maybe even try some fresh mint leaves or a few fresh or frozen berries.
