Sweet tasting honey lemonades minus harmful sugar!

Unless you have been hiding under a stick of rock these past few years, you will have heard that sugar consumption has skyrocketed. We are eating more of the stuff than ever – a fact decried by commentators, celebrity chefs and politicians alike.

But sugar does not only add to the flavour, but diets high in sugar also tend to be high in calories, and the associated weight gain can have an impact on your heart, lead to diabetes and tooth decay.

Reasons to switch to healthy options

Caloric beverages contribute to weight gain more than solid foods because the body doesn't compensate fully for beverage calories by reducing calorie intake from other foods. Adults who drink one sugary drink or more per day are much more likely to be overweight than non-drinkers, regardless of income or ethnicity.

Those consuming sugary drinks regularly have a higher risk of developing type 2 diabetes than people who rarely consume such drinks. The chances are even higher for young adults.

Sugar-packed beverages consumption is associated with nearly twice the risk of cavities in children and increases their likelihood in adults. Untreated cavities can lead to pain, infection, and tooth loss.

Another alarming fact is the much higher risk of having a heart attack in those regularly consuming sugar-rich drinks.

Healthier, tastier and with lower calories
