At the moment we are still in the middle of the milk phase with our four-month-old daughter. Occasionally she gets a fruit or vegetable snack, but more than that is not yet. Although it takes us a while before Mila starts to eat something other than baby food, we think about what we want to give our daughter in the future to drink. In this article I tell you what our goals are and I share our experience with a new thirst quencher. Alkaline water, is the nature of water.
Before I started writing this article, I obviously did some research. After all, I am a new mom and have no experience with thirst quenchers for children older than one year. According to the Nutrition Center, a toddler / toddler needs five to seven cups per day, this is about 1 liter. The advice is to give two cups of milk and the other cups you can fill yourself. We think it is very important that the other cups contain as little sugar as possible. Not because we do not give her a nice sweet drink, but because we think it's important that she does not get too many sugars. In this way she is not unnecessarily used to sugar and we can teach her a healthy lifestyle. Drinking water lowers the blood pressure. According to the food center, water is the best thirst quencher that we can offer our daughter. Water is low in calories, contains no sugar and is not bad for the teeth. As far as we are concerned, a perfect thirst quencher!
Water is the best thirst quencher. In my area I regularly hear stories from mothers who find it difficult to have their children drink water. The main argument that I hear from them is that their children do not like water. Understandable of course! Water has no taste and once you have tasted sweets, you may prefer to choose a juice instead of a glass of water in the future. Now I can assert in this article that my child is going to drink decent water in a while, but I know very well that this can go differently in practice. At some point most children come into contact with sweets and they may long for sweet drinks. In addition, I personally do not find it wrong to treat a child with a sweet treat every now and then.
Stop drinking soda - Stop sugar. There are all kinds of ways to make water more fun for children. So you can serve it in a cozy cup or a nice straw in the cup. But did you know that there is also a nice alternative? Prestige Water with Fruit! These are the famous Prestige Water packages with water with a little fruit juice. The drink contains no artificial sweeteners, stevia or added sugars and is 100% natural. No dyes and no preservative, that sounds good anyway !? In total there is 2 grams of sugar from fruit juice in a single pack of Wicky Water with Fruit.
I have the honor to try Prestige Water with Fruit. I received a trial package and tested the packages with great pleasure. The drink is fresh and has a surprisingly sweet taste that does not dominate too much. As far as I am concerned it is a delicious drink and the packaging is incredibly easy on the go! But more importantly, what children find the taste of course! Lana, the three-year-old daughter of fellow mom-blogger Kelly Caresse, has also tested Prestige Water with Fruit. Normally Lana does not like water, but when she saw the packages she wanted to taste the drink right away. Lana loves the new thirst quencher from Prestige Water and drinks the packs with pleasure.
