The happy healthcare host, Mr. Divabetic visited SUNY Downstate Medical Center to play his food game, Serve Taste or Trash! Game with healthcare providers, staff members, medical students and patients. SUNY Downstate Medical Center is one of the nation’s leading urban medical centers, serving the people of Brooklyn since 1860.
Mr. Divabetic’s Serve, Taste or Trash! Game aims to encourage kids of all ages to become more open-minded eaters. Each game features three different food and/or beverage choices. To play you must decide which choice you’d serve, which choice you’d taste and which one you’d trash.
How many calories are your drinking? Today’s Serve, Taste or Trash! Game challenge features Coca Cola, Poland Springs Water and Brooklyn Summer Ale. Mr. Divabetic with special guest divabetic, Lorraine Brooks tested each player’s ‘Beverage IQ’ with questions ranging from how alcohol affects your blood sugars to the number of cans of soda a day it takes to elevate your risk of developing type 2 diabetes. In addition, Downstate Medical healthcare providers and staff members offered their suggestions on how to increase your daily water intake.
Did you know? A new study indicates that drinking one or more cans of soda a day can increase one’s risk of developing Type 2 diabetes. One in five were at elevated risk of diabetes with as little as one can per day according to statistics published in the journal Diabetologia.
