MANGO Mania WEEK #3:

Keeping the drinks in snacks healthy

Did you know that fruit drinks, pop, and sports drinks usually contain lots of added sugar, very few vitamins and may contain caffeine?  For example, one 700ml bottle of sports drink has 10 teaspoons of sugar – the same amount in one can of pop.  These are not considered healthy beverage choices.

The Dietitians of Canada recommend:

-Children 1 to 8 years old get 6 cups of fluid (liquid) per day (1 cup = 250 ml)

-9 to 13 years old girls should get between 8-9 cups per day

-9 to 13 years old boys should get between 10-13 cups per day

There will be a Home and School meeting on Monday, January 20th at 7 pm in the cafeteria.
