  • does it have caffiene? if not, i wouldnt worry about it. i dont think two much sugar is great for them, but one bottle a day isnt horrible.i think powerade is good for ya right? its like a sports drink. you should be fine.

  • Unless you have gestational diabetes, it's probably fine. Powerade has a lot of carbs in it which wouldn't be ideal if you had GD... unfortunately I had to stop drinking my Gatorade because of Gd.... :( Drink a Powerade for me, would ya!!!!
