3. Soda

In order to cut down on the calories that a sedentary child in today’s society consumes, many parents let their children drink soda. The only thing worse is diet soda.

Bottled water, or even sparkling water with a little bit of fruit juice added, is a much better choice.

These products are not safe for adults so it is amazing that some parents allow their children to consume diet sodas. First of all, they don’t even quench your thirst and second, the fake sweeteners are addictive and continue to make you crave sweets. Many of these sweeteners are on the market for a long time before they are pulled off the shelves. They have been known to cause heart attacks, high blood pressure, cancer, diabetes, and strokes, as well as childhood obesity.
