Ice cubes made of sugar (and water) can both sweeten and cool your favourite summer beverages. Perfect for unsweetened iced tea and/or smoothies, sugar ice cubes are also ideal for sweetening mixed drinks without the added dye and/or high fructose corn syrup often found in sodas. Add a sugar ice cube to a cup of water for a finicky child to encourage the intake of more water. Sugar ice cubes are also good for diabetic children who have lost their appetites due to sickness.
