2. As you can see from the results of the quiz, many beverages contain sugar.

Some of these beverages, like juice, are often presented as healthy and marketed to kids. True, they can have lots of vitamins and taste good, but the sugar feeds bacteria that cause cavities. And those cavities can actually spread from baby teeth to adult teeth. Healthy teeth and bodies need water. Help us spread this message to everyone!
