So there's WATER. There is Juice. There is Milk. There is Soda. and a few more but these are the basics.
My kids don't drink juice, it's considered a rare dessert around here.
Milk is rare...it is also not good for kids (or adults) (yes I know...some of you are thinking...yup she's nuts, but there are so many reasons)
Soda....well, take a guess?
Needless to say...I have gotten very creative in giving my kids something yummy besides water.
Their newest favorite...(meaning they won't let me go a day without making it) is
ICED PEPPERMINT TEA!
Seems simple...IT IS!
It is so refreshing and is SOOOO good for them.
Both of them drink it in their water bottles at school and can't get enough.
Best of all Peppermint has wonderful health benefits for our digestive systems and our immune systems! SCORE!
I buy loose leaf peppermint tea, it tastes the best in my opinion..but bags work too...I have a loose leaf tea maker, add boiling water and steep....if you make the tea really strong (by steeping it really long) you can add ice and 1/2 water to it at each serving. Store in the fridge.
I add stevia to it and it makes a wonderful sweet refreshing drink that won't mess with your childrens blood sugar levels (VERY important imo).
