Back to School WAT-AAH Water Challenge!

As a health conscious mother; I only want what is best for my children; but I also don’t want to be a complete tyrant and not allow them agency to make decisions for themselves. Especially with food; as they need to learn now how to make these decisions so when they grow up they can still be Healthy even though Mom isn’t around. Sometimes finding a balance between protecting and helping my children be healthy yet still allowing them the chance to make decisions for themselves can be tricky. When I heard about the >WAT-AHH Back to school challenge; I thought this would be the perfect learning experience to see what my kids would actually choose!

The Challenge: 

 

–Place the 10oz WAT-AAH water bottles in the fridge alongside the regular lunch box sized beverages and then watch to see which drink the child chooses to drink.

Why WAT-AAH!? WAT-AAH is a product line of functional water for kids that is free of sugar, calories or coloring,  and tastes like pure, clean, unadulterated water. Since its inception in 2008, WAT-AAH!’s mission is to reverse kids’ dependency on sodas and sugary drinks and to make water their #1 choice for hydration.

The Results:

It didn’t take my kids long to notice the new “water bottles” in the fridge! They were immediately excited about the look and style of the bottle, the cartoon character and the perfect portion size just for them. And then they noticed the soda. We don’t keep soda in the house on a regular basis; so when my sons saw the soda in the fridge next to the WAT-AAH bottles; they wanted to know what the special occasion was! haha. First Soda in the Fridge and next cool new Drink bottles for THEM! I said there wasn’t a special occasion, they could simply have their choice of drink, soda, juice or the WAT-AAH. It was a hard choice for them. Usually our biggest problem is that our kids drink too much juice, but when the option of Soda and cool new water bottles were there…they didn’t even NOTICE the juice! So their hard decision was between the Soda (which we rarely have, so they wanted it because it was a novelty item) and the new and exciting WAT-AAH bottles.

In the end; both of my boys chose the WAT-AAH drink; with the stipulation that they’d still get to “share” a soda later; but they wanted their own WAT-AAH bottle right away. Currently the juice is still being ignored; as they continually reach for the WAT-AAH bottles when they need a drink at home; or to take with them.

I think I have to give WAT-AAH a thumbs up on this project. It made drinking water fun and exciting for my kids and they still choose it over juice! Thank you WAT-AAH
