Live Healthy Live Bubbly by taking this 7 day Challenge

Staying hydrated is an important part of living a healthy lifestyle. A new survey of Canadian mothers conducted by Ipsos Reid on behalf of Nestlé Waters Canada reveals that, on average, moms are consuming between three to four soft drinks per week. 39 percent say they are not looking to reduce their intake of these drinks at all. When thinking about the number of teaspoons of sugar an average soft drink contains, just two in ten moms correctly identified 10 teaspoons per container. Juice can also come in at a high count with an average 355 ml glass of orange juice containing just over 8 teaspoons.
To put this into perspective, the World Health Organization recently suggested that daily sugar intake be six teaspoons for the average adult, which is a fraction of the 26 teaspoons per day Statistics Canada says the average adult consumes.
Sherry Torkos, pharmacist and author of The Canadian Encyclopedia of Natural Medicine mentions that excessive sugar consumption is linked to many serious health conditions including obesity, diabetes and dental cavities. Reducing our consumption of sugared beverages will help reduce our overall daily sugar intake. For a healthy alternative, try swapping soft drinks or juice with sparkling water. Sparking water is free of both sugar and calories, making it an easy way to cut back on our sugar consumption so we can enjoy a healthier life.
As part of its commitment to helping families live healthier lives, Nestlé Waters Canada is challenging Canadians to take the Live Healthy. Live Bubbly 7 day Challenge and swap one sugared beverage with Nestlé® Pure Life® Sparkling Natural Spring Water, in great tasting Original, Lemon, Lime, Mandarin Orange and Raspberry Lime, for seven days to kick start their efforts to reduce their sugar intake.

  15. They sound good. We have a soda stream that we use to make sparkly water but these would be handy to have for when we are on the go. Thanks for the review! (Judy Cowan)
