A large number of people began to pay more attention to proper nutrition, including useful foods in the diet, and not only elderly people, but also young people.
The fact is that in our time some manufacturers add to the production of various chemical additives, which adversely affects the health status after their use.
However, nutritionists say that the general well-being, the work of the bodies largely depends not only on food, but also on drinks that are most often present in the diet.
Just worth noting that an adult should drink at least two liters of water per day to prevent dehydration of the body or metabolic disorders. Currently, the stores offer a wide variety of juices, which are very popular with children.
Packaged Juices Contain Much Sugar
A certain category of parents prefers to buy juices for children, believing that they are more useful than sweet carbonated drinks, because they contain a lot of vitamin in their composition.
As a result of the research conducted by scientists, it was found that packaged juices contain a large amount of sugar or its substitutes, which negatively affect the work of the stomach and intestines, and also contribute to the development of obesity.
Therefore, it is better to prepare the juices yourself, as there will be no sugar and preservatives in them, which are added to prolong the shelf life.
It should be taken into account that such a drink should not be taken on an empty stomach, but better after twenty minutes after breakfast. In addition, pediatricians are advised to give their children natural fruits and berries more often, because there is no fiber in the juices, as well as fibers that prevent the release of sugar from the fruit into the blood.
Do not forget that fructose is able to deteriorate the quality of tooth enamel, so you should adhere to the norms of using these drinks.
In addition to juices, children need to more often offer natural yoghurts, cocoa, teas, especially green, because it contains many useful substances that prevent the development of various diseases, as well as contributing to the removal of harmful accumulations from the body.
