How To Get Your Kids To Drink More Water!

Worried that your kids aren’t drinking enough water? Wondering what you can do about this, since handing a glass of water to your child never garners the same kind of awe and attention as when you hand over a milkshake or glass of juice? The good news is that you’re right about H20! It’s very beneficial to your child’s oral health. As for how to up how much your little one drinks every day without too much effort, we have some helpful ideas.

Pack Water “Juice Boxes”

It’s true. If you have not seen it yet, you can actually purchase water in a juice-box-style container. As a result, it is easier than ever to send your child off to school with some oral health protection in the form of water with lunch. Send it on its own or along with juice (if you can convince your child to drink the water last, even better). It’s a simple way to get them drinking a bit more H20 throughout the day.

Make It Fun

Have you been thinking that you should really drink more water lately? If so, you’ll be helping your own oral health along with that of your children. Fortunately, there are many ways to make this fun. You can make a game of it (and track the amount of water everyone drinks every day, which is followed by an incentive, should you reach your goals). You may also shop for cool looking reusable water bottles, so everyone has a special way to drink water together.
