5 healthy soda substitutes

Posted: Updated:

The convenience and taste of soda are just two reasons why people tend to reach for them, and a recent research shows that among soda drinkers are not only adults, but also among children as well.

A Yale University Rudd Center for Food Policy and Obesity study found that a majority of Americans know that soda is "bad for them". But despite this, a Gallup poll reveals that 48 percent of surveyed Americans drink soda on a daily basis- with the average daily intake over 3 cans per day.

Ali Holman from Corecamper.com shows you 5 soda alternatives that you can easily implement into your daily consumption to get that fix.
