Herbal or Fruit Tea
Hot or cold, herbal and fruit teas have lots of flavor, are slightly sweet, and don’t have added sugar or calories. They are also non-caffeinated, so you can drink them in the evening instead of reaching for dessert.
A word of caution: Stay away from sweetened bottled teas which have almost as much sugar and calories as soda. Make sure to brush your teeth after drinking tea with a fluoride toothpaste that whitens to help keep staining at bay.
100% Juice - Use a Reusable Straw
Although juice contains a lot of sugar, 100% juice is better than soda or other holiday beverages. Make sure that the juice you buy does not have any added corn syrup or sugar.
If you have a juicer or blender, you can also make a juice or smoothie with greens that will help cut your sugar intake. Be sure to drink juices in moderation and use a reusable straw. Sipping through a straw helps protect your tooth enamel by limiting the amount of sugar that comes in contact with your teeth.
