Thanks so much for all the entries. This contest is closed. My winner is clallen!
With the kids back in school, it is even more important for us to teach them about healthy drinking choices and their need to stay hydrated. Many students are drinking during their lunchtime and rarely any more than that throughout the day. This is not healthy at all.
So, how do we teach them to drink more? Better yet, how do we get them away from the juice boxes and sodas and drinking what they need: WATER?
The solution is Here:
WAT-AAH! is the first 100% sugar-free, functional beverage brand designed especially for kids. WAT-AAH! was launched in June 2008 in New York . It is currently distributed in more than 250 stores including Whole Foods Market. The brand was recently named by Trend Hunter magazine as one of the Best Products for Kids in 2009. WAT-AAH! contains no sugar, artificial flavors, colors or unnatural additives. WAT-AAH! is ultra pure water containing the right amount of essential ingredients such as magnesium, electrolytes and oxygen to help maintain children's health. WAT-AAH!'s mission is to reverse the established behavior and dependency on sweetened drinks among America's children, and ultimately help fight the battle against and to teach kids that healthy bodies can be obtained through healthy hydration, http://www.wat-aah.com/.
I had been watching reviews of WAT-AAH popping up all over the blogosphere so I decided to find out what the buzz was all about. Through my membership at The Product Review Place, I was able to contact WAT-AAH and request my own review of their products. I was sent bottles of WAT-AAH and some marketing materials: tattooes, stickers, ets.... in exchange for my honest review of their product.
Once I received the product and began removing it from its box, the biggest attraction for the product became quite evident: The appearance of the bottles.
Don't they look neat? Psst....... I would drink them based on appearance. lol I put the WAT-AAH in my fridge to get good and cold. I love really cold water. My son comes in a couple hours later, looks in the fridge and says, "Cool, what is this?" So I tell him it's water and explain each bottle to him (I'll tell you that in just a sec) and he's like, "Hmm... they look cool." Then, he takes the WAT-AAH instead of the soda. This is BIG! He loves Mountain Dew but he chose WAT-AAH instead. Now for the bottle explanation:
The Blue bottle is for the Brain: Ultra purified water, kid-friendly electrolytes and NO SUGAR
The Orange Bottle is for Bones: Ultra purified water, bone-building magnesium and NO SUGAR
The Pink Bottle is for Body: Pure spring water, no sodium, no chemicals, NO SUGAR
The Green Bottle is for Energy: Ultra purified water, energizing oxygen and NO SUGAR
I honestly cannot attest to whether or not each bottle is effective in the area it is designed for. Maybe if I were drinking it daily for a period of time, I could reap the benefits..... I can't say. What I can say is the water is good. It has a pure, clean taste. If there are the above mentioned additives, they do not affect the flavor of the water.
My opinion is, if you want your child drinking more water, the bottle alone will get them to do it, from my experience. I kept the bottles after we tried the WAT-AAH and keep them filled with water and my son will still grab them from the fridge.
Now, WAT-AAH would like for you to have the opportunity to introduce your children to their products and to encourage them to stay away from sugary drinks. They are providing one of my followers with a WAT-AAH Backpack filled with fun, back-to-school items and WAT-AAH samples.
