Rethink Your Drink

Some time ago, I was invited to host a booth at a local Health Fair. At the table, I displayed a variety of drinks, along with the corresponding amount of sugar contained in each drink.

The responses I received were amazing!!!!! It’s your turn now. I challenge you to READ THE LABELS!!!!
