To encourage healthy habits, I try to steer my children toward drinking water at home. But, plain water can seem boring, and it’s easy to reach for less healthy options.

With the SodaStream Power Automatic Sparkling Water Maker we can enjoy a yummy drink without choosing sugary soda.  Sparkling water is a fun way to treat both my kids and myself while still making great healthy choices!

For a really fun sparkling water treat set up a “Create Your Own Sparkling Water Flavor Station” for your kids and their friends. It’s so much fun to mix and test different flavors!

Set up a Create Your Own Sparkling Water Flavor Station

Choose several SodaStream Sparkling Drink Mixes to make the base of the flavored drinks. My kids chose Waters | Fruits – Berry Mix, Waters | Zeros – Cranberry Raspberry, and Waters |Sparkling Gourmet – Blackcurrant Lime.

*I have to add here that the Zeros Sparkling Drink Mixes contain the natural, plant-based sweetener stevia. I avoid artificial sweeteners for my children, so I was very pleased to find that these mixes are naturally sweetened! (Both the Fruits and Gourmet lines also use natural flavors and sweeteners.)SodaStream

Use the SodaStream Power to carbonate the water with the touch of a button. Choose one of three fizz levels to create the perfect amount of fizz. After carbonation, add the Sparkling Drink Mix Flavor to the bottle and label each flavor.SodaStream
