Water is the best all-round drink, according to the charity.
It adds: “If your family likes flavoured waters, make your own by adding a squeeze of lemon or lime, or strawberries.
“Children often need reminding to drink, so give them a colourful water bottle with a funky straw.”
Tea, coffee, chai and hot chocolate
The charity advises: “Cut back on sugar and use semi-skimmed or skimmed milk.”
Herbal teas can make a refreshing change and most are caffeine-free, says the diabetes experts.
