Summer may have your kids reaching for the sodas and sugary beverages, but we have a delicious and healthy alternative for you that is free of the Harmful 7.
Staying hydrated in the summer is extremely important, and we encourage drinking lots of fluids throughout the day, but skip the sugary drinks or diet sodas. These often contain many of the Harmful 7 ingredients like Artificial Flavors & Colors, Artificial Preservatives, High-Fructose Corn Syrup, and Processed & Artificial Sweeteners. A great way to stay hydrated is to sip on water infused with some of your favorite seasonal flavors. Here is a recipe to get you inspired:
Strawberry Mint Limeade:
16 oz of cold water
1 small lime
4 mint leaves
3 large strawberries
1 cup ice cubes
1. Thoroughly wash your produce
2. Slice ingredients and add to a pitcher and enjoy within 24 hours
Note: the measurements of this recipe can be changed to adjust the intensity of the flavor to your personal preference.
