If your child is anything like mine, you struggle to get him to drink enough water throughout the day. I have tried giving my daughter H2O in cups with fancy Disney characters, tumblers just like Daddy, and even a goblet (don’t ask). Thankfully, I was given the opportunity to try Tum-E Yummies at the perfect time. Tum-E Yummies created a brand new kids water enhancer that claims to make water tasty and fun while providing essential vitamins.
The Tum-E Yummies Water Enhancers comes in two fantastic kid friendly flavors, Fruitabulous Punch and Very Berry Blue. Both boast no sugar and are sweetened with sucrolose, something I usually tend to avoid. However, with no caffeine or sodium, they are the only kids water enhancers on the market to offer 100 percent of the recommended daily value of vitamin C, B6 and B12.
I was skeptical at first that something toted as vitamins for kids would interest my picky gal, so I decided to give it to her when I knew she would be nice and thirsty — after playing outside in the Carolina heat.
I popped open the tiny bottle and squeezed one squirt of the Very Berry Blue into 8 ounces of water. Then I stood back and watched, somewhat astonished, as my daughter gulped down the entire sippy cup in what seemed like two seconds.
“Yummy juice,” she exclaimed and then she asked for more. MORE.
In complete shock and disbelief, I quickly made myself a glass and I too gulped it right down. The stuff is tasty, y’all. Not too sweet, not too watery tasting. My daughter rarely gets the luxury of a sugary sweet juice so to her Tum-E Yummies Water Enhancers “blue drink” was a real treat.
While one small squirt of Very Berry Blue is enough to make my girls water taste a little less like water and a little more like juice, when we tried the Fruitabulous Punch, both mama and child needed a little more flavor. Two squirts was the perfect combo for a post nap pick-me-up.
You and your child can control the taste by adding more squirts of the enhancer to a glass or bottle of water. One bottle of Tum-E Yummies Water Enhancers is 24 servings, so if you are having a party or providing beverages for soccer practice, consider adding the entire bottle of Tum-E Yummies Water Enhancers to a pitcher of water for a delicious vitamin packed drink.
One of my favorite things about Tum-E Yummies Water Enhancers is that the bottle itself fits into the palm of my hand. The small size makes it super easy to throw in my diaper bag, giving me the flexibility to turn any glass of water into something my daughter will actually drink! I may have even thrown a bottle of Very Berry Blue into my own gym bag. Join me at Bikram Yoga and I just might share a squirt or two with you!
Tum-E Yummies Water Enhancers are now available in the Southeast U.S. at most Bi Lo, Winn-Dixie, Food Lion, and Lowes Foods. At $2.99 a bottle, they are an affordable option to entice your children (and you) to drink more water!
