Health Tip: Opt for Healthier Beverages

Suggestions to avoid needless sugar and calories

(HealthDay News) -- Some drinks can be a significant source of unnecessary calories and sugar. But there are healthier ways to quench your thirst.

The American Heart Association suggests:

  • Skip sweet tea in favor of plain, unsweetened tea with a squirt of lemon, some berries or calorie-free sweetener.
  • Enjoy a glass of club soda with fruit slices for added flavor.
  • Skip mochas, and opt for a small latte. Ask for nonfat milk instead of whipped cream.
