Flavoured water
HI,

Are all these new flavoured waters fattening, they say on the bottle low cal ?. Also if they are sparkling does that mean they are bad for you as they say "fizzy" drinks are bad for you?

Thanks.

Dear Taryn
It depends if these flavoured waters are sweetened with sugar and if so, how much energy they contain? Check on the label to see if they mention the energy content. The addition of carbon dioxide to produce a sparkling drink is in no way harmful. The reference to fizzy drinks refers to the high sugar or energy content of standard carbonated drinks such as cola drinks, etc.
Best regards
