iVillage.com: The 14 Worst Kids' Foods: Are They in Your Kitchen?

Sports Drinks

Whether it's a vitamin-enhanced water or an electrolyte drink, sports drinks aren't a great option for kids.

Try offering chocolate milk instead -- studies have found it provides just the right ratio of protein and carbs to help repair muscle.
