2. Brighten up water

Make water an exciting alternative by adding a pop of colour. Add fruits like frozen berries,
kiwi and apple to make the water taste and look more interesting.

 

3. Make healthy swaps

Swap sugary drinks like fizzy drinks, energy drinks and juice for lower-fat
milk, water, sugar-free or no added-sugar drinks.

 

4. Try a water app

Download a water tracker app and mark off the glasses of water you drink per day!

 

5. Use a fun bottle

Buy a plain bottle and decorate it using permanent markers – the more fun the bottle,
the more likely you are to use it!

 

6. Ditch the energy drinks

Energy drinks aren’t suitable for those under 16 as they can contain a lot of sugar and caffeine.
Having energy drinks may be linked to difficulty sleeping, headaches and anxiety.
