I’ve been quite lucky I think, because both my children naturally seem to drink a lot.
We’ve never really had to work at getting them to stay hydrated, but with warmer days coming I am really aware that I need to keep an eye on them and make sure that they are actually drinking enough. So I was pleased to be offered the chance to get involved with Robinsons #EnjoyMoreWater challenge.
Robinsons are on a bit of a mission you see, to get us all drinking more water. And adding Robinsons squash to your water is a great way to make it all a bit more interesting! As part of the challenge I was sent 6 bottles of Robinsons Squash’d to try, and I was really quite impressed when they arrived.
The bottles are teeny but you only need a teeny amount in your cup or bottle to get a great hit of flavour. And speaking of flavour, there are some really yummy ones in the range:
- Lemon and lime
- Apple and blackcurrant
- Orange and peach
- Summer fruits
- Passion fruit and mango
We’ve had a great time trying all the different flavours, and I think passion fruit and mango is my favourite, it’s so refreshing! I also love the fact that the squash has no added sugar, and has no artificial colours and preservatives, so if you’re one of the 42% of parents whose children thing plain water is ‘boring’, then Robinsons squash’d is a nice way of adding some flavour and interest without having to worry about adding a load of sugar.
If your kids do find water a bit boring and need a bit more persuading than mine to drink more every day, then these tips might help you:
2) Make it fun.
3) Always have drinks available.
4) Work out their preferences.
5) Talk to them about their pee.
I really hope these tips help you if you’ve got a reluctant drinker on your hands, and that we all feel the benefits of drinking more water in an effort to encourage our children to do the same!
