Thirsty? Quench Your Thirst with Water
With temperatures on the rise, the heat can leave you quite thirsty! Recent studies have found that children, specifically 12 – 14 year olds, are consuming sports drinks unnecessarily. These sports drinks are high in sugar and can lead to obesity and tooth erosion and cavities.
Children misunderstand the use of the sports drink and consume them socially instead they are intended for endurance training and intense sporting events. Athletes who consume them should be aware of the effects the drinks may have on your teeth and should practice good dental habits.
