Keep Your Kids Hydrated with Corpell's #Health #Winnipeg

One of the things I worry about constantly as a Mom is making sure that my kids are getting enough to eat, and especially enough to drink throughout the day. We are always on the go, no matter the season and sometimes it's tough to make sure that my kids have enough of the good stuff (like pure H2O) to keep hydrated.  I've found the best solution is making water easily accessible to my kids and my daycare kids.  When I know that they don't need assistance in helping themselves, and they are having fun with it, I can be certain that they are getting enough to drink throughout the day.  And I feel good about giving them the best bottled drinking water available locally, as opposed to sugary fruit juices or other less healthy options.  

Did You Know?

A minority of consumers buying bottled water can do so as an alternative to tap water.  However, according to a study conducted in May of 2006 by Probe Research Inc., the majority (70%) of adults who purchase bottled water do so as an alternative to buying other packaged beverages, not as an alternative to tap water. Bottled water competes with a variety of packaged beverages, including carbonated soft drinks, milk, juices, soya beverages, energy drinks, and sport drinks. - CBWA

Offering kids the option of water as opposed to juice is a huge benefit to their health.  Juice is a known factor when it comes to children's tooth decay, childhood weight gain and let me just go ahead and say it, can often cause hyperactivity in children, leaving water as the better choice to fill those sippy cups.  Who needs all of that extra sugar, anyway?

My Experience

As a long time customer of Corpell's Water, I have seen the difference it has made in the simplicity of my everyday life as a Mom, as well as the health of my own children.  Since she's been able to use a regular drinking glass, my daughter has been able to get her own water to drink, straight from the water cooler.  I feel good knowing that she's getting pure water, without the added chlorine or funky colours sometimes coming from the kitchen tap.  I'm sure you've all seen that - nobody wants to drink it!  She's not asking for juice anymore, because there's the appeal of independence, and doing what she knows is good for her body.  Additionally, mixing my son's baby bottles was a breeze with the hot tap on my Corpell's water cooler, as no boiling of the water was required.  When we were on our way out the door, I would simply fill up a bottle with hot water and it was at the right temperature to mix by the time I needed it.  What more can a busy Mom ask for?  My kids are choosing the healthy option on their own, and at this point they are able to help themselves.
