Enjoy More Water Challenge

We are a very active family and love spending time outdoors. I drink a lot of water but worry that the boys don't drink enough and the last thing I want is them drinking too many sugary drinks. Robinsons have created  a super- concentrated squash with no added sugar; even better is that it comes in a handy small bottle that is perfect for putting in your bag and can transform a bottle of water into a refreshing juice drink. Each bottle makes 20 drinks so is perfect for taking on Cub activities to ensure everyone stays hydrated. We recently tried the new bouldering wall at Waddecar and as it was a very warm evening the Cubs needed plenty of juice throughout the night. 

There are a selection of great flavours, we tried the Orange & Peach, Lemon & Lime, Summer fruits, Apple & Blackcurrant, Citrus and Passionfruit & Mango and the boys liked the apple and blackcurrant best whereas my favourite was the Passionfruit & Mango.

They are also great to take when we are out cycling as they fit easily in the bag or can be added to our water bottles.

Robinsons launched the Enjoying Drinking More Water campaign in January 2016, as part of their mission to get Brits enjoying drinking more water. We all know we should drink more water but most people I know do struggle with it. When I asked friends why they don't drink more water the top reason was everyone found it too bland. We should aim to drink about two litres of water every day which is the equivalent of 8 small glasses so what are the best ways to hit the target?

Here are a couple of tips I use to help keep my boys hydrated

1. Have a jug of water on the table at meal times - we drink more water this way as it is easy to top up your glass.

2. Make ice lollies with water and Robinson's Squash'd - these are lovely on a sunny day and a great way to get more water into the boys without them realising!

3. Flavoured water - Adding a little flavor makes water much more interesting.

4. Fun straws and cups - Luke loves drinking with a straw and when he was younger loved choosing fun cups to drink out of.

5. Lead by example - if children see you drinking lots of water they will too.
