What counts as water?
3yr
Does tea count as a glass of water since it's like herbs steeped in water? Does sparkling water count as a glass of water?
  • DietID_TeamDietitians Yep! Both count as water. We recommend herbal tea if you're going to replace more than 1 cup of water with tea b/c herbal doesn't have caffeine.
