Ideally, children should be offered water as a thirst quencher. Any type of sweetener should be avoided if possible. Many children who “grow up” with it have no need for sweet thirst quenchers at all. The media like to spread the variant: fruit juice spritzers, or similar are healthy for adults and children. Even if these certainly taste good, they are unhealthy for the teeth if they are administered continuously throughout the day. Even carbonic acid should be handled with care, since it is also an acid.
