Be a Part of the Nestlé® Pure Life® Ripple Effect

Thank you Nestlé® Pure Life® for sponsoring this post. All opinions are my own.

Do you struggle to get your kids to drink enough water? Getting my oldest daughter to drink water has always been a battle. She says she hates the taste of water, so she’s not touching it unless she has no other option. With all the sugary drinks that are available to our kids why would she want to choose the boring healthier option? I am constantly trying to think of new ways to get my daughter to drink more water.

Kids in America aren’t drinking the amount of water they need.

A new study released by Nestlé® Pure Life® reveals some surprising info about water consumption among American kids. The online survey conducted in June 2015 included 1,077 moms of kids from 6-12 years old as well as 1,077 kids from the same households.

What happens when a child is dehydrated?

Dehydration is associated with health problems like headaches, irritability, poor cognitive function, and poor physical performance. Severe dehydration can lead to serious health issues.

Do you remind your children to drink water?

48% of moms surveyed said they don’t regularly remind their kids to drink water, and 33% of kids said they forget to drink water if not regularly reminded.

Kids who drink 4+ glasses of water per day are more likely to create healthy habits such as eating fruits and vegetables, getting water for themselves when thirsty, or choosing healthier options for school lunch. Reminding our children to drink water is an important part of building those healthy habits.



As a proud supporter of the Partnership for a Healthier America’s Drink Up initiative, Nestlé® Pure Life® is committed to helping families make healthier choices with The Ripple Effect movement.

[color-box]”A recent study* stated that 54% of all school-aged children are inadequately hydrated. This shockingly high number alarmed Nestle® Pure Life®, and they’re creating efforts to reduce it. Partnering with After-School All-Stars, Nestlé® Pure Life® has committed to provide nearly one million 8 ounce servings of water to kids this school year through After-School All-Stars an organization that strives to keep children safe and healthy through afterschool programming. Additionally, they’re helping consumers keep their own families hydrated with information and tips on the site”[/color-box]

At, moms are coming together to share ways to get their kids to drink more water and learning the importance of staying hydrated.

    My son is all grown up now but I remember having a difficult time getting him to drink water. I love the idea of putting fresh fruit and cool ice cubes in the water to encourage them!!
