Keep Kids Hydrated this Summer with Homemade Fruit Water
Staying hydrated is important especially during the summer months. Sugary beverages like juice and soda do not quench thirst and add empty calories. Hydrating with water is the best choice. Adding fruit and vegetables and herbs to water can enhance the flavor and make it more palatable.
Here are some combinations to consider.
Citrus fruits: oranges, lemons, limes with basil
Berries: strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries
Pineapple and kiwi
Watermelon and cucumber with mint
Strawberry and lemon
Melons: honeydew, cantaloupe
Be creative and mix and match. Cut fruit into cubes or fun shapes. Place in a pitcher in the refrigerator.
