Healthy Hydration for Kids with WAT-AAH! Review and Giveaway (Ends 6/18) CLOSED

Friday, June 04, 2010 Posted by Dina N

At my house, the drinks of choice for the kids are milk and water. Juice, chocolate milk and lemonade are reserved for special occasions, or for meals outside our home.

Drinking plenty of water is important for everyone but especially so for active kids who can easily get dehydrated during the hot summer months. I was excited to learn about a new campaign to keep kids hydrated.

WAT-AAH!, a NYC based company, aims to make drinking bottled water fun for kids. Their water comes in bottles with slick shapes, neon labels, and a cartoon image of a boy with a big mouth. There are four types of WAT-AAH - body, brain, power, and energy, each color coded with a different neon label. The company's new advertising campaign is under the motto "Don't Drink ___________, Drink WAT-AAH!" With the space filled in with the words soda, sugar, junk, and &#%+!, kids and their parents are encouraged to pick a healthy alternative to sugary drinks.

We have a water filtration system at home and stainless steel bottles for outside, so I generally don't buy bottled water. As a mom who wants kids to stay away from too much sugar in their diet, I can appreciate the effort to make water cool and hip.

We tried the four WAT-AAH! varieties, and found they tasted quite good. My kids were impressed by the colored labels and the boy cartoon on the label.

Learn more about the campaign and connect with WAT-AAH! on Facebook and YouTube.

    We have a filter that filters from our faucet that last for a year before you need to change it. It's awesome. In summer we usually fill a pitcher and put it in the fridge for cold filtered water.

    I drink my water plain from a glass. We have a water filter! At work I drink it with a packet of vitamin booster.

    I use a Brita filter, and try to drink more than I actually do...sometimes I throw in some powder mix just for flavor.

    Water at my house always comes from a machine. We usually use water bottles and reuse them. We have become fond of those metal bottles. Personally I love them! I've heard so much about wat-aah! I'd love to win some for the sibs!
