Flavored Waters to Enjoy During Pregnancy

Adding Flavor Can Increase Your Water Intake

Water is the perfect drink. During pregnancy, you will want to ensure that you're drinking more water and less of the unhealthy drinks like sodas and coffee. But if you're not a big fan of tap water or even plain bottled water, this might be a challenge. Here are some bottled waters that contain flavor that might help you increase your water intake and stave off dehydration. Note that some of them contain artificial sweeteners as listed.

While some flavored waters have mild flavors, Sparkling ICE embraces bold flavors. There are still zero calories but you can enjoy flavors like black raspberry, orange mango, pink grapefruit, cherry limeade, or kiwi-strawberry. Each of these contains 3 percent juice. They are sweetened with sucralose. As the name implies, they are sparkling rather than still.

Is a hint of flavor enough for you to enjoy water? This water comes in 10 flavors including peppermint, cucumber, pear, blackberry and more. There are zero calories and no artificial flavors, just a hint of flavor to cure the plain water blahs. These waters are very much lightly flavored. In fact, you might smell rather than taste many of the flavors or you might detect them as an aftertaste only. They do not taste artificially flavored.

Dansani Flavors are waters produced by the Coca Cola Company. You can also buy packs of flavoring to flavor your own water called Dasani Drops. The drops are nice because they are easier to carry around and cheaper to ship. They also can help mask tap water if you find you are sensitive to it. These do not have calories.

Dansani Drops come in these flavors: Strawberry Kiwi, Pineapple Coconut, Pink Lemonade, Watermelon Punch, Pear Acai, and Orange Passionfruit. They have 32 servings per bottle and don't contain any juice. They add zero calories. They are sweetened with sucralose and acesulfame potassium (Ace-K).

Dasani Flavors are the ready-to-drink variety. They have just a touch of natural fruit flavor and don't contain any juice. They are available in lemon and strawberry. Lemon has 5 calories per bottle while strawberry has zero.

Vitamin Water is fairly easy to find in most drug stores, grocery stores, and convenience stores. They come in standard 16.9 fluid ounce sizes and a variety of flavors, including dragon fruit. This nutrient enhanced water is a source of C and B vitamins. They contain sugar as well as Stevia.

The Bottom Line

While flavored water is certainly not a necessity, it certainly can help you if you are not a plain water fan but want to give up your habit of drinking sodas. Flavored water might be a stepping stone to plain water or it might be something that you use for special occasions while drinking plain water most of the time.
