I took a sip of water, looked up and thought, “Holy cow. Everyone should see this.”
The ‘Think Before You Drink’ poster, produced by Baltimore’s-own Business Health Services, was posted above the drinking fountain at my daughter’s school. My eyes went straight to the 20-oz. orange Fanta bottle containing 17.6 teaspoons of sugar. That’s four times a child’s daily sugar allowance. I know that sodas are basically liquid candy, but having the metric unit of sugar grams converted to teaspoons was eye opening.
