I’ve noticed that many of you drink sugar-added beverages during lunch and some of you even during class. We will talk about this during the week but it’s very important that you become conscious about your habits, you’re old enough to make healthy choices regarding your daily diet.
Some of the drinks I recommend you think twice before asking your parents to buy them for you, (or buying it yourselves in the cafeteria!)
