It is not uncommon for children to prefer sweet drinks like juice over water. However, it is important for their overall health to encourage them to drink water as well. Here are a few tips to help encourage your son to drink more water:
-Make water more appealing by adding a slice of lemon or lime to it.
-Set a good example by drinking water yourself.
-Let your son pick out his own water bottle and make sure it is always filled and easily accessible.
-Make drinking water a fun activity by having a water-drinking contest with your son.
-Lead by example, be sure that you also drink water regularly.
It is also important to limit the amount of juice he drinks and make sure he is getting enough water in his diet.
