—Giveaway Now Closed—
We’ve been trying to drink more water at our house lately. You just feel better when you’re drinking mostly water. The long list of health benefits when you’re drinking water is awesome.
Don’t get me wrong, I love the diet coke, but I’ve been trying to set a good example for my kids.
I’m not sure the exact amount of water recommended each day, but I do know that when you have your own personal water bottle, it’s a lot easier to track how many times you fill it up in a day, which makes it easier to figure out.
My boy cracks me up. He’s crazy for anything “new”. We recently were sent a new kids water bottle by Brita that has a filter right inside. You would think it was Christmas morning with the excitement he had about it. Ha! And I’m all for it! If something as simple as a new water bottle that’s just for him gets him to love to drink water, than it’s a major win-win.
Not only do I love all the benefits that come with drinking a lot of water. I love that we’re avoiding the waste of all those plastic water bottles.
Here’s some sad facts:
- Sugary beverages are the largest source of added sugar in U.S. children’s diets, likely contributing to the rise in childhood obesity levels.
- Only 15 percent of school-age children drink the recommended amount of water, but on average they consume six sodas per week.
The new Brita Bottle for kids is a 13 oz. squeezable and reusable bottle with a built-in filter that provides a fun and convenient solution for kids to drink great-tasting water on the go.
It comes in three different colors and a kid-friendly size, the Brita Bottle for Kids is also BPA free and dishwasher safe.
Right now Brita is teaming up with non-profit Alliance for a Healthier Generation to encourage kids to swap out sugary beverages and drink more water. As part of their partnership with the Alliance, Brita will donate more than 4,000 Brita Bottles for Kids to schools across the country to encourage healthy habits in their students. Brita is working together with the Alliance for a Healthier Generation to engage students, educators and families about the health benefits of drinking more water and provide tips for staying hydrated every day.
What do you do to encourage your kids to make healthy choices at home and on the go?
The winner of this giveaway will be chosen via Random.org and announced on this post.
