The most popular non-alcoholic beverages are packaged juices, cola, soda, iced tea, sweet tea, green tea, lemonade and punch.
Many packaged juices contain large quantities of sugar and can adversely affect health.
Carbonated drinks contain lots of artificial colours, sweeteners and preservatives that are harmful to the body.
Kvass, made from fermented rye bread, is considered a soft drink, although it can contain up to 1.2 percent alcohol.
Freshly prepared fruit compotes and freshly squeezed juices are healthiest.
