Because of that advice, I have never served juice to my children. They are served whole milk at meal times and they may drink water all the rest of the time. Kool-Aid, soft drinks and juice are for special occasions like birthdays and other celebrations.
I can only imagine the cost of supplying 7 children with those sugary drinks every day. We save our pennies by offering water (and I don’t mean the kind that comes in a bottle) to thirsty children. They never complain because they don’t know any different. Water, straight from the tap, is just what a person should drink when he is thirsty, if you ask them.
That’s my Frugal Friday tip for this week. Cut out the sugary drinks and offer water instead.
