Making Water Fun

| 19 Comments

I am a really good boy and only drink water – apart from baby milk, it is the only drink I have had. It is a different story for my teen bro and sisters!

Mummy stuggles to get them to drink more water – my sisters (now aged 16 and 19) are actually getting better as they get older, MeeMee (19) does drink far more than she did, and Lea (16) has been drinking more during her GCSE’s – the school has even been providing water to take into the exams.

Making Water Fun

It is super important to drink water at every age, but especially important for teens, as water helps with concentration and memory which is much needed when revising for any exams, and just coping with every day school work and homework.

Being dehydrated can cause tiredness, headaches, grumpiness and affect sports performance.

I love water because I have never really tried anything else, but I hear my bro saying that water is boring….or tasteless…. ‘I just don’t like it!’ So Mummy has been thinking of ways to make water fun, and thank goodness Robinson’s have come to the rescue with their #EnjoyMoreWater campaign with their clever little Squash’d drinks.

Squash’d are small little bottles of concentrated squash in delicious flavours that you just add to water. Each bottle has 20 servings inside, and transforms any glass or bottle of water into a delicious fruity drink. You can pop one in your handbag, changing bag, or lunch bag knowing you always have a refreshing drink with you.

Teen bro loves them! As does Mummy – she knows that she doesn’t drink enough water either, but loves these drinks.

 

Where we have been making water fun:

At home after water pistol fights in the garden.

At the beach, it is especially important to drink more water in the sun, as you sweat more.

Days out – save money too by taking Squash’d with you to add to tap water or take bottled water with you.

Travelling – take one in the car, on the train or bus. You can also take onto an aeroplane to liven up bottled water flight side or on board.

Keep one handy after a hard day at school to hydrate tired brains!

Another great idea is to use a fruit infuser water bottle to keep hydrated while getting a good amount of vitamins from the fruits.

We received a pack of Squash’d for review, but received no payment.

  1. I actually brought some of these when I was holiday as I could only find water or fizzy everywhere we went and it was so nice being able to just pop this in and have a squash instead. x

  2. Aw aren’t they cute?? They look very convenient! My two little ones have only ever had water too & they are both happy with it. But I’m terrible for not liking to drink water as it bores me & not drinking enough in general! As you say, it’s not a good habit to get into – should drink plenty, especially water!

  3. I must admit that I hardly drink water without lemon as I always crave for flavored drink. I have to try Squashd and might as well play with water in the garden. Hehe

  4. These little bottles are a great idea. I took one to Orlando with us to pep up the water in the theme parks.

  5. I have to remind my very elderly mother to drink water too, I think it’s easy for us all to forget that we must keep our bodies hydrated especially in the Summer.

  6. It’s great they don’t have any added sugar. I noticed them in the supermarket, but didn’t look on the package to check if there is sugar or not. They seem very handy too.

  7. We try to keep squash to a minimum, but when we do have it, it’s always Robinsons.

  13. A fantastic post. I think the juice containers are a fab idea for making and helping kids and older ones /teens stay dehydrated. We saw them in the supermarket and I was wondering what they taste like. The waterguns look so fun! We have one and Sylvia loved soaking my hubby John!

  14. These look fab and I may have to give them a try for my little boy! He drinks water at school etc but says he wants something else when at home as water is boring so these may be the answer! x

  15. This is a good alternative for this ‘tasteless’ drink. I’ll surely tell my sister about Squashd since she is also having a hard time letting her kids drink water.

  16. I absolutely love these, so handy to have in your bag too x

  17. looks fun and the sunny day is lovely! time to enjoy summer outdoors!

  18. I’ve been trying to get my daughter to drink more water by making her have squash, she just hates water with a passion and when she’s out with her friends will only drink fizzy drinks. These are great for on the go so I think I will definitely have to keep an eye out for them xx
