Dangers of Capri sun drinks

So apparently a finding just came out on Capri sun , claiming they found fungi in the drinks. These drinks are NOT healthy. Kids need to be drinking nutritious drinks, without the preservatives, and colorings. These drinks claim they are full of vitamins, and minerals but they are not! With these findings, it is a bit scary that these drinks are being made as “healthy”. Please look at what your giving your kids as drinks. These are not good by a long shot!
