Help Kids Stay Hydrated to Keep Their Emotions in Check

Giving them the help to stay hydrated just might be the piece of the puzzle you’ve been missing.

Everyone who has kids knows their little (and oftentimes, not so little) feelings are non-stop. Hangry, tired, upset stomach, misbehaving to get attention… most of the time it’s a mystery why they act the way they do. There’s one connection I’ve made between my kids and their crazy emotions though. When they need help getting hydrated, they are all over the place. I’ve even noticed both their creativity and ability to focus on school are affected when they are not properly hydrated. My kids aren't the only ones -- according to a study published in the American Journal of Public Health,* 1 in 2 kids is underhydrated. 

So my kids and I were all beyond thrilled to learn that Creative Roots sent us a ton of their flavored coconut beverage to sample and hand out to area families. Creative Roots offers kids the plant-powered hydration they need with the delicious fruit flavors they want. As their mom, I can relax knowing each bottle contains all-natural, plant-powered ingredients, and 1 gram of sugar per serving**.

Whether on-the-go or at home, my children and I love to reach for a bottle of Creative Roots. My kids love it for the taste. I love it for both the taste and to help keep myself hydrated. My kids think of Creative Roots as a special treat, which is fantastic because they are always excited to drink it. It’s never been easier to help keep them hydrated — and doing so means my house runs so much smoother!

With fun, delicious flavors, Creative Roots is perfect for every day or as a special kids’ drink for everything from holiday meals to family movie nights. My kids love grabbing their favorite flavor for a mid-afternoon hydration break.

Creative Roots plant-powered water is available in four kid-approved flavors – all with 1 gram of sugar**:

  • Watermelon Lemonade
  • Peach Mango
  • Orange Pineapple
  • Mixed Berry

Meet the Sploots!

To add to the fun, have your kids check out the side of their Creative Roots bottles and meet the Sploots — the friendly, plant-powered characters who represent Creative Roots by promoting overall wellness in reminding kids of the importance of hydration.

Helping my kids stay hydrated has been so much easier lately thanks to Creative Roots. No more fights or reminders to drink more, they are eager to reach for a bottle of the plant-powered beverage. We’ve swapped struggling with getting enough to drink during the day for a better-for-you beverage that helps my kids stay hydrated, healthy and happy — it has made all the difference at my house.
