Healthy, water-based drinks for kids
Flashback to summer as a kid: It’s a hot, sunny day and you’re outside playing for hours. You come inside for a break, and Mom pours something refreshing to drink. For people of a certain generation, summer drinks used to come from flavor packets mixed with water. Years later, kids quenched their thirst with juice pouches—or even soda. We may have fond memories of our childhood drinks, but unfortunately, they had a lot of sugar.
But there’s good news. Today, Americans of all ages are drinking less sugar. To support this encouraging trend, parents are choosing to make their own healthy, water-based drinks for kids.
Fresh juice for all ages
Author/blogger Ciara Atwell of My Fussy Eater takes inspiration from the juicing craze among adults. She recommends letting kids join in the juicing process, including gathering together the fruits and veggies. Of course kids shouldn’t operate a juicer, but they will enjoy watching the produce become liquid. Ciara also suggests starting with more sweet-flavored fruits, like apples and berries, before trying a vegetable juice.
Easy recipe to start
To begin, try an Apple Lemonade. Chop up two medium-sized apples and add them to a juicer. Next squeeze the juice of one-half lemon over the chopped apples. Blend. If it’s too tart for your little one, add a few drops of honey. This will make about 250 milliliters, or one cup, of juice as the base. Next mix the juice with filtered water to taste and add ice.
Have fun experimenting with different fruit and veggie juices for your kids. As a general rule, use one cup of juice, and mix it with water to taste.

1Coway air purifiers has been proven to trap dust, pollen, dander, viruses and bacteria in the air based on KCL (Korea Conformity Laboratories) testing.They have been tested in a 30㎥ size chamber according to the Korea Air Cleaning Association standard (SPS-KACA 002-132:2022 Modified) to measure the 0.01㎛ size of particle removal rate. It was tested on maximum airflow speed in normal room temperature and humidity conditions. The performance may vary in the actual living environment of customers.

3Aerosol test conducted in a Biosafety level 3 laboratory with two Coway air purifier models, Coway Airmega 250 and 400 for removal of SARS-CoV-2 Aerosol by US based MRI Global, a not-for-profit laboratory and partner of US Department of Defense. The test was conducted in a 13.1ft3 chamber. Virus was aerosolized for 15 minutes and the product was turned on high for 2 minutes. Result showed each product effectively removed over 99.98% of the SARS-CoV-2 in 2 minutes. This is a result from a laboratory experiment condition and result may vary in different conditions. This result does not imply it kills SARS-CoV-2 or prevents the transmission of Covid-19. Coway Airmega 250S and 400S are identical to the tested models and has equal performance with an additional mobile connectivity function.
4The concentration of ammonia, acetaldehyde and acetic acid were proven to be removed within 30 minutes by FCG Research Institute, Inc. Human Life Science Lab. It is not a demonstration result in the actual use space. Not all odors and gases may be supported. → Tested with Coway Airmega 150, 160, AP-1512HH, AP-1512HHS, 400, 400S
5The coverage area of the air purifier is based on an area where the air cleaner can make two air changes per hour (ACPH). An air change per hour translates to how many times an air purifier can clean an area, assuming the height of a ceiling to be 8 ft, in one hour. Therefore ** means two air changes per hour means that the cleaner can clean the area once every 30 minutes and * means air changes per hour means that the air purifier can clean the area once every 60 minutes.
