It can be difficult for many parents to get their children to drink water. Kids want a drink that is sweet and delicious, but usually these drinks are either high in sugar, sodium, and cholesterol, or all of the above. Even the drinks you see at your local supermarket that are advertised as ‘healthy’, are usually not. We've put together a list of eight healthy, low-sugar drinks that still pack a punch of flavor.
