Liquid sugar, like that in soda and sports drinks, is the largest source of added sugars in the American diet. Children’s Hospital Colorado wants families to rethink their drinks and understand how much sugar is hidden in sugary beverages. For example, did you know drinking one soda has the equivalent sugar of eating 18 cookies?
