Ensuring we drink enough water each day can be a task for adults and children. During hot summer months it is more important than ever to keep hydrated and to avoid sugar filled beverages. Replace sugary beverages with fresh fruit infused water. Try your child’s favorite fruit, either fresh or frozen, with a few ice cubes as a refreshing drink this summer. The options are endless: oranges, lemons, strawberries, blueberries, grapefruit, raspberries, apples, etc. Make it fun and have your children try a different fruit infused beverage each week to see what fruit they enjoy the best!
