In The Classroom & The Home: Water Versus Sugary Drinks #BottlesforKids (VIDEO)

Soda, juice and sugary drinks are nary to be found in our home. Water is the main drink of choice with exception to juice once in awhile.

Did you know that on average, school age children consume six sodas per week?! That is craziness! Only 15% of school age children drink the recommended amount of water. 15%!

Fruits and vegetables are made up mostly of water, in fact 84% of a raw apple is water. Our bodies need water, not sugar. I know as a parent I want to provide my children with the healthiest lifestyle possible and it all begins with diet.

I’ve always been very passionate about healthy lifestyle and eating habits and have made it my mission to encourage my children to do the same. Last week while shopping for groceries I came across the new Brita Bottle for Kids. It is a reusable bottle with a built-in filter that filters your water on the go. Smart no?

That’s one way I’ve helped my kids discover the wonders of water. Brita’s new product, the Brita Bottle for Kids, now provides an easy and fun way to have clean, filtered H2O on the go.

Now I’m curious, how do you encourage your kids to drink more water? Reply below and one of my readers will win a $50 Visa gift card!

    My son has a personalized water bottle with his name on it. He loves to fill it with water and take it with him when he goes outside to play.

    I add a bit of flavoring to it, like a bit of their favorite juice, lemon, orange, or a stevia flavoring.
