Gatorade

If your child is an athlete, and you are concerned about minimizing sugar in his or her diet, a simple thing to do is cut out sport’s drinks like Gatorade.  As you can see from the label below, Gatorade is loaded with added sugar, sodium, artificial food coloring & a few other ingredients unknown to me.  Water is a great alternative during exercise, and it is FREE!!!!
