We do try to find a better alternative though if we're really craving for something sweet. Like in the juice department since our daughter likes to drink lemonade. And since we're always on the go, we do pack a few juice packs in the car aside from water.
Luckily, I found a lemonade that doesn't use sugar or artificial sugar. It's called Leaf & Love, and they only sweetened their lemonade with organic stevia leaf extract, the lemon juice is organic as well. Win win!! We first tried them at the ClubMomMe Fall Family Fest at South Coast Botanic Garden last year.
|These two are tired from running around. Time for a juice break. They are seriously tired. Haha.|
The kids has been drinking them since. Leaf & Love is the first All-Natural, USDA Organic, & Zero grams of sugar Lemonade for kids, well and adults too, coz' I drink them as well. Other juices are at about 20g of sugar, while Leaf & Love is zero.

It's also just 5 calories per pack when other brands are at at 40 to 100 calories. And pack with Vitamin C. Leaf & Love was created by two moms so kids can say goodbye to the sugar high. We have them in the car when we travel; snack times at home, and for picnics and playdates.
