Do your drinks matter?
The simple answer is yes!!
Did you know that many sugary drinks are absorbed very quickly into your body, so they cause a sharp rise in your blood glucose levels. They are also full of energy, so without realising it you could be piling on the pounds! In fact some drinks can even contain as much energy as a small meal and exceed your recommended sugar intake for the day.
An easy way to improve your blood glucose and cut down your energy intake, is to choose reduced sugar or better still, sugar free drinks.
