When we think of beverages we often don’t think of the most important one – water. In Australia, many adults and children don’t drink water at all. They rely on juices, soft drinks, tea and coffee to quench their thirst, but most times they do not supply the body with sufficient water. Many beverages are counter productive to trying to maintain sufficient hydration by acting as a diuretic. Water is the best drink and it doesn’t contain kilojoules.

There is a great range of organic beverages to appeal to the varied tastes and contexts of every day living, including coffee, tea, cocoa, tisanes (herbal infusions), water, fruit and vegetable juices, wine, spirits, and beer, and ginger juice.
