Fruit Fizzies & Infusers for the Kids & You!

water kidsHaving a tough time getting your kids to stay hydrated and drink plenty of water? Feel like it’s a constant battle? Here’s a few ideas to get the kiddos sipping some more water and probably asking for more!!! Ditch the juice box and up your little ones water intake. It’s healthier, flushes their system, keeps them from getting sick more often, and keeps them hydrated to be the best they can be in school and on the fields. These are so fun to make and the kids will love getting involved. Add different kinds of veggies and herbs to really change it up! Grab some crazy straws and make it even more exciting. You can interchange these with sparkling or filtered water depending on your mood!
