Want an easy way to help your family be healthy? Choose water or milk for your family instead of fizzy drinks or fruit juice.
Water is freely available from the tap and is the perfect drink when you are thirsty. Some ways for making water more appealing to kids are:
- Make water the fun choice by letting your children choose their own water bottle or drinking cup.
- Fill up water bottles and pop them in lunch boxes or school bags so your family always has a drink on hand.
- At mealtimes, put a large jug or bottle on the table. It’s cheaper and better for your family than cordial or fizzy drink.
- Add slices of fruit such as lemon to make water more delicious.
Milk is another great drink choice for kids at meal times or as a snack. Milk contains lots of goodness and helps build strong bones.
