Our expert says:
The best drinks for 3-year-olds are clean water (tap water that is boiled and cooled), freshly squeezed fruit juice in small quantities, rooibos tea and low-fat milk or yoghurt drinks. Commercial fruit juices do contain high levels of fructose which may contribute to weight gain, as do fizzy sweetened cold drinks. So rather wean her of the diluted fizzy drinks and get her used to drinking healthy beverages that are not harmful to her health, weight or teeth.
