When my boys were younger it was easy to get them to drink enough. Now they are at school. I struggle to get them to finish a drink. Everywhere I go in the house, I’ll find abandoned cups with half finished drinks. They just get too distracted by life it seems to drink enough. So these are my ways to keep kids hydrated. Plus there’s a great giveaway too!
One of my main issues with the boys not drinking enough is that they often confuse thirst for hunger. You probably know the feeling well, where you seem to be constantly hounded with requests for snacks. So my first solution is to always offer a drink first, before any snack is provided. Often this is enough.
Try a cool cup.
Kids love a novely cup and just the idea of driking from one can lure them into drinking more.
Make water fun.
Try adding slices of lemon or Lime to water to give a subtle flavour. Or get some novelty ice cube trays that the kids will love and add them to their drinks.
Be a role model.
Make good choices about your drinks. Show your children that water or low sugar drinks are great, tasty and healthy choices. It’s hard to get children to do anything if you say one thing but demonstrate another.
Keep kids hydrated at Lunch.
When the boys are at school, it’s out of my control how much they drink, but I know they’ll always finish their juice box in their lunchbox. The youngest is a big fan of both Paw Patrol and Peppa Pig. Plus these are lower in sugar.
