Hydration is extremely important for everyone but especially kids since they can get dehydrated more easily. When you throw in a child with some health issues then water becomes even more important. Did you know that water helps maintain a healthy body weight? It also improves our attention span and concentration skills which is great for kids with ADD/ADHD! Another good point is that drinking water will reduce tiredness and increase our capacity to exercise.
Water is a vital part in our digestion and helps clean our bodies on the inside and our immune system depends on water to help fight against colds and the flu.
My oldest daughter has ADD/ADHD so drinking water is an important thing for her to do on a daily basis. However, getting her to drink anything other than Kool Aid or soda is nearly impossible. Here is where WAT-AHH comes in handy. When we received WAT-AHH I have to admit that I was a little sceptical about it. I thought, ‘it’s water…in a cool bottle…my kids aren’t gonna go for this.’ But, they did! My kids couldn’t wait to open them and taste this ‘totally awesome water‘. Why you ask? Because the bottle looked fun and inviting! SCORE! Finally something cool and kid friendly that will get my kids to drink more water every day. They drank it and loved it. When I asked my oldest why she liked it so much she said, ‘Well it tastes like regular water but the bottle is cool! ‘ Ok I hear ya, ‘so if it tastes like normal water then why does she like it? Did she ask for more?’ Well kids like things that are fun, cool and kid friendly. The bottle is very inviting with fun colors and design, so even if it tastes like normal water she is drinking it and yes, asking for more. As long as she drinks it, likes it and it gets her motivated to keep drinking water then I’m A-Ok with it!
Something I didn’t know was that, ‘poor hydration in kids will result with a rise in their body temp. Their brains (which is 75% water) will be the first organ to be affected. Besides irritability, crankiness, moodiness, kids will experience loss of alertness, lack of concentration, inability to remember and feeling of fatigue will be noticed immediately.’ WOW! Maybe I should start drinking WAT-AHH too! I could always use a little extra energy that doesn’t come in the form of caffeine and sugar.

With the review of WAT-AHH! I was asked to challenge my children to see which kind of drink they would prefer drinking. I offered them juice boxes, Kool-Aid and WAT-AHH!; what did they choose? Well…WAT-AHH! of course! These colorful bottles won them over and I was pleased with the fact that they are healthy and motivate my children to drink more water.
