Quiz: Beverage Calorie CountingTake this quiz to test your knowledge of calorie counts for fifteen different beverages. The information comes from the United States Department of Agriculture National Nutrient Data Base.
Each answer is based on an eight-ounce (one cup) serving. The beverages you drink can add a substantial number of calories to your daily intake. That doesn't mean they're unhealthy, but you do need to count those calories, especially if you're watching your weight.
Some beverages are more nutritious than others -- fruit and vegetable juices are better for you than sugar-sweetened soft drinks or energy drinks. Milk or milk substitutes are good sources of calcium and vitamin D. And plain old water is an excellent beverage.
