New Water Buddies, A Fun and Healthy Way To Keep Kids Happy and Hydrated
When it comes to a drink that quenches the kids' thirst and is good for them, you really can’t go past a nice cool glass of water.
Of course the challenging bit is to get them to drink the water and leave the cordials, the fizzy drinks, and the fruit juices, which are all quite high in sugar. I do think that these drinks are still ok occasionally, if your children are at a party, or for a special treat once in a while.
But when they are thirsty, on all those other occasions, and they need a quick, healthy drink to rehydrate them, but they don’t feel like a glass of water what do you give them?
Water Buddies are a new water-based drink, with no artificial colours, flavours and sweeteners. In fact, they contain just 1.8% sugar. This is about 80% less sugar than some fruit juices. The company proudly boosts a NO JUNK promise.
These fun and healthy drinks have nothing to hide. Kids can enjoy them any time of the day and parents can feel good about it too.
It helps encourage kids to drink more water and steers them away from the sugary drink choices.
They contain pure New Zealand spring water, with a splash of natural flavour. They come in four delicious tastes, including Real Yum Raspberry, Awesomely Orange, Goodie Goodie Grape, Kiwifruit and Strawbs, as well as a pure water version, Nothing But Water.
When my kids spotted them they immediately wanted to try them out. This was due to the gorgeous shaped bottles, with fun colourful characters on them, as well as a fun joke or fact. They are cleverly designed to be great for little hands to hold.
The bottle shape has been designed by kids for kids. They feature colourful tinted caps, and pictures of the very cute ‘Buddies’ characters. There is Milla in her magical crab suit; Bubble Merfriend; Carter the Deep Water Robot; Baloopa the Starfish; and Jam the Jellyfish. My kids now want to collect all five characters.
Water Buddies are available Australia wide in Woolworths stores, New Zealand Natural Ice Cream stores and other leading independents across Australia for RRP $1.99 for a 300ml bottle.
