There’s a good reason that canned and bottled beverages are called liquid candy—and that term is not reserved for soda pop alone. Vitamin-enhanced waters, teas, and juices are loaded with empty calories from sugar, adding inches to Americans’ waistlines and possibly contributing to rising rates of chronic disease. In this program, registered dietician Susan Moores presents five segments that offer suggestions for beverage selections, including picking healthy drinks, choosing drinks for kids, selecting drinks for sports and athletic performance, low-calorie drinks, and the pros and cons of caffeine. Lipton Green Tea, AriZona Iced Tea, Odwalla protein drinks, vitaminwater, and other popular beverages are featured. A viewable/printable worksheet is available online. (26 minutes)
