Fruit drinks - where do you stand?
If a drink is marketed as a fruit juice you might be forgiven for thinking it is healthy. McDonald's has a fruit drink which is classified as "one of your five-a-day" in reference to the public health message to get at least five portions of fruit and veg per day. Healthy, right?
So you might be confused when told that such drinks are not healthy at all and contain vast amounts of added sugar - far more than you would add to a cup of tea! In fact the small serving contains 25g sugar per 100mL drink.
Michael Bloomberg, Mayor of New York, is tackling this problem head-on by launching the newest phase in their anti-obesity drive "Pouring on the Pounds."
One of the latest videos makes us think about healthy sounding "fruit" drinks, which are in fact packed with sugar.
I would recommend fruit to be consumed in it's natural state - i.e. instead of orange juice, eat an orange, it's far healthier!
I really like how these videos show clearly the sugar content - something which is usually hidden and not thought about.
