Including for your children. At least according to Dr. A. E. Carrol:
As for me, I’m a big consumer of Diet Ocean Spray Cranberry Juice–I probably drink about a liter or two of it a day. It has Splenda in it. It’s one way I’ve kept my BMI (Body-Mass Index) in the normal range. It’s my compromise between water and drinking soda. I never drink soda or coffee–and rarely milk (my choice with cereal is unsweetened 30 calorie almond milk). And I don’t drink non-diet juices either. Mostly just water and the Diet Ocean Spray juices (there are a couple of varieties)–and occasionally herbal tea. Sometimes I drink wine (perhaps twice a week with dinner). That’s about it.
When I have a heavy hit of sugar, it’s in dark chocolate.
So I’m a huge bore. And will drop dead someday anyway. But that’s my current fluid consumption routine.
