It is summer time, and I am always telling my kids they have to drink lots of water everyday because it is so hot outside. Plus, I am prego, plus my daughter and I both are prone to UTI's, and so we need to drink water even more. Water is boring. I have tried many things things this summer so far, to get everyone, including myself, to drink more water. My latest attempt was a water drinking contest. It was fun and exciting for the kids the first couple weeks, now, boring. They don't even try anymore.
But now, I found this awesome flavored water recipe on pinterest!!! It adds a new element to the water drinking contest. Once they drink one of their special 18 oz. water cups (with lids and straws, I might add) they get to have the flavored water! And what a treat that is. The second cup is always gone much faster than the 1st. The kids goal is to drink at least 2 1/2 of these a day. And now, they do, easily. And they are loving it.
Pictured is the Blackberry/Sage water. SO GOOD! There is a hint of sage, and the combo is wonderful!
Hope you enjoy trying these yummy waters!!
