Water<br>Water<br>Water
I prefer flavoured water than normal acid drinks because I believe it has less calories. Is this understanding correct, if I am health conscious?

Dear Vera
Flavoured water is fine, check on the labels to see if it is sweetened with sugar or artificial sweeteners. The manufacturers should also list the energy content per 100 ml, so that you can see how many cal or kJ you ingest daily by drinking this water.
