    Sometime back I recall reading here on IndusLadies that Indian Energy Drinks are not good for health. With Winter around the corner and temperatures dropping in the U.S., I have a craving for drinking Horlicks, Viva, etc. Are these bad for health, also do they add calories for adults? I like Hot Chocolate too but I think it is 100% sugar and calories. At least Horlicks and VIVA may have some food value?

    My standard morning drink is a cup of Indian Horlicks in whole milk. It is a couple of hundred calories but I just account for it elsewhere. I don't think it has any great nutritional value other than the milk itself but its one of my favorite childhood memories of my grandma giving us a hot glass before school.

    Go by the calories and definitely they have more than intended that is for sure. Well, back in India we had not these current knowledge based on calorie intake and output. So we were so used to drinking them. But better to analyse them before drinking. Moreover depends on your calorie use per day. On the whole I don't find much necessary as they don't suppress your appetite but increase your calories in the small amount you take. It is just like once in a while drink, but never to be taken regularly.
