How Active Kids Stay Hydrated While On The Go!
I have three very active kids that love being on the go and exploring every trail, park in playground we encounter. As mothers we can all agree that keeping your kids hydrated when they are busy and having fun can be difficult. I often feel like I am that crazy mom at the playground chasing my kids around with a water bottle in order t convince them to drink more water. No one wants to be that mom… so thankfully I have found the perfect solution where my kids are staying hydrated by choice and I don’t have to nag them at all! We have discovered a simple, convenient and fun way for the kids to stay hydrated while on the go. The last thing I want is to keep my kids from being kids and creating amazing childhood memories.
My kids generally enjoy drinking water with snacks and meals, but easily get bored with it when it comes to play time. We don’t drink dairy or juices at home, so they are always more than willing to try out a new drink when one is introduced to them. They recently had the opportunity to try out Fruit Shoot and they were an instant hit! These drinks come in a variety of regular and no sugar added flavors. They come made with 20 calories or less and contain just three grams of sugar. The flavors available include the following:
• Apple (no added sugar)
• Berry Burst (regular and no added sugar)
• Orange (regular and no added sugar)
• Strawberry & Raspberry (regular and no added sugar)
• Wild Berry Grape (no added sugar)
What moms love about Fruit Shoot® is that they are made with real fruit juice from concentrate. It is also free of artificial flavors and high fructose corn syrup, so moms can feel good about buying it for their family. Plus it comes with a re-sealable cap, so you don’t have to deal with any messes. You can just let your kids be kids. I have found that filling them in a cooler of ice while on the go works best. When my kids are busy playing in the yard, I will fill a large bowl full of ice and stick the Fruit Shoot® drink in the bowl. I don’t even have to remind my kids to stay hydrated, they will run right over to the bowl when thirty and get hydrated on their own! Keeping your kids hydrated and plenty of outdoor exercise are two very important things for children… so finding simple and fun ways to do both is key to a successful and busy summer with the family! Give Fruit Shoot® a try this summer and you will witness first hand just how much kids love to stay hydrated with these drinks. They are the perfect size for little hands and the re-sealable caps leave moms stress free because you don’t have to worry about them leaking in your travel bags. So what are you waiting for? Get outside with those kids and create some memories!
Something else I am very excited to share with you is that you can support The Literacy Project by purchasing Fruit Shoot® at you local Pizza Hut®. Make sure the next time you take your family to Pizza Hut, purchase a Fruit Shoot and help make sure all children have access to books!
