Water is freely available from the tap and is the perfect drink when you are thirsty. Some ideas for making water more appealing to kids are:
- Make water the fun choice by letting your children choose their own water bottle or drinking cup.
- Fill up water bottles and pop them in lunch boxes or school bags so your family always has a drink on hand.
- At mealtimes, put a large water jug or bottle on the table. It’s cheaper and better for your family than cordial or fizzy drink.
- Add slices of fruit such as lemon to make water more delicious.
Milk is another great drink choice for kids at meal times or as a snack. Milk contains lots of goodness and helps build strong bones.
