It’s no secret that most of the population could use more water in their daily lives. But not all of us love plain water. All too often we turn to soda, sugary fruit drinks, or energy drinks to hydrate us. These might provide liquid, but the added sugar, caffeine, and other additives aren’t doing our health any favors. The solution is adding healthy ingredients to make it a new experience.

Adults need 8-10 cups of water each day, while kids need anywhere between 5 and 8 cups each day. Most kids prefer other beverages to plain water, but adding in some fun fruit just might change their choices. Get them involved in the flavor combinations and preparation and you just might inspire some healthy beverage choices along the way.
