Sugary Drink Can

Sports drinks are gammin! Go for water instead

Think you need a sports drink after exercise? Think again!

Rethink Sugary Drink has launched a new campaign to show the Aboriginal community that sports drinks are full of sugar and no good for us – they’re gammin!

Regular consumption is bad for your teeth and can lead to weight gain, increasing the risk of type 2 diabetes, heart and kidney disease, stroke and some cancers.

So the next time you feel like a sports drink, go for tap water instead. It’s free, convenient and the best way to hydrate.
