Page 10 July 8th, 2010 Valley News & Views PRAPJ FA- Consider Your Beverage Julie Garden-Robinson, Food and Nutrition Specialist, "Do you have trouble lugging in all your soda pop and then finding a place to store it?" the announcer in the commercial asked. "Yeah, right," my teenage son replied with a note of sarcasm as he and my daughter tuned into the commercial. People in the commercial were dragging cases of pop into their homes, where it was being stacked. The commercial then described a device that allowed you to make soda pop at home. According to the ad, you'd have soda pop on tap and save money in the process. Happy children were filling their cups. "You can order regular or died" my daughter noted with mock enthusiasm. My kids looked at me and grinned, knowing my take on the item. We already have water on tap, I thought to myself. Tap water is quite a bargain. It's hydrating and saves me lots of money. Although we are not a "pop-free" household, we consider pop a treat and not our main beverage, especially during family meals. For many reasons, "milk with meals" is a good recommendation to follow. In fact, with three growing kids including a teenager, having milk on tap would make more sense in our home than soda pop on tap. Teenagers are in their prime growing years, so the overconsumption of soda is not good news for their bones or the bones of any person. People who drink more pop have much lower intakes of calcium, magnesium and other nutrients. At 150 calories per 12- ounce can for regular pop, drinking liquid calories easily can add weight to your frame. If you choose a 20- ounce can of regular pop, you'll be consuming about 250 calories. Just 100 extra calories a day, in theory, could add 10 pounds to your frame in a year unless you cut calories elsewhere or get more exercise. On the other hand, swapping high-calorie beverages for water could pare pounds from your body. Some studies have shown that teens drink twice as much soda as milk, with teen boys guzzling about three cans per day and teen girls about two cans. With all foods, read the nutrition facts labels on the products. Unfortunately, nutrition labels on larger- sized bottles can be a little confusing unless you do a little math. For example, a 20-ounce bottle of regular pop contains 2.5 8-ounce servings. The information on the nutrition label is "per serving" not "per container." Be sure to multiply the number of calories by the number of servings on the container. Think about your beverage choices this summer. With summer heat, people need to be especially careful about keeping their bodies hydrated. The water in fruits, vegetables and other foods counts toward the daily recommendation. According to a list provided by the University of Missouri, for the same amount of calories provided by one can of regular pop, you could have one of these hydrating, fiber-rich choices. You may not be able to eat all 150 calories of fruit in one sitting, though. 2 cups of fresh pineapple 3 cups of watermelon 1 1/2 bananas We reserve the right to limit quantities, Not all sale items available at all participating stores.

Ole and the Traffic Camera Thanks to Cousin Pat Ole was driving through downtown Minneapolis when he saw the flash of a traffic camera. He knew what it was because he had just read about them in Popular Mechanics, so he figured his picture had been taken for going over the speed limit. He knew he wasn't speeding, but just to be sure he drove around the block and passed by the same spot, driving slower than before, but the camera flashed again. Now he started to think, "dis is kinda funny," so he drove around again, even slower. Again the camera flashed. Ole tried a fourth and a fifth time, now driving very, very slowly, laughing, and even waving at the camera, but it continued to flash. Two weeks later, after he had returned to his farm outside of Fergus Falls, he got several tickets in the male of driving without a seat belt.
