Worst Drinks: Sports Drinks

The truth of the matter is that the vast majority of children (and adults) don’t need Gatorade, Powerade, or anything similar: a piece of fruit and big glass of water would do better. Sugar will actually slow you down if you're running less than a 12 mile race, and eating a salty snack and drinking water will serve you better than drinking a sports drink after intense exercise, which the average second grade soccer game doesn’t count as, anyway. That snicker’s bar worth of sugar in a 12 ounce Gatorade? Not doing any favors for Little League exercisers.
