Getting kids to drink more water might be a cinch if it was a beautiful colour like this magenta-tinted water.
And it’s all natural! No artificial anything.
Here’s how I do it:
Fill your container of choice 3/4 full with water (I like mine filtered).
Use some beet juice left over from juicing or grate half a small beet (save the grated beet for salad).
Add the grated beet to a small glass of water and swish it around a bit to release the beet’s colour.
Using a strainer and a funnel, pour the tinted beet water into your container of water.
That’s all there is to it!
This has been kid tested – they love the stunning colour and always ask for more.
You could also tint your water with a little red berry juice, but I think the kids love grating the beet and watching how it magically tints their water.
