We have all heard how important water is for our bodies, and how we need to drink 8 glasses a day. A recent survey conducted by Leger Marketing about Canadians’ water consumption found that of 1545 people, most felt they didn’t consume enough water. In fact, 52% consume less than 5 glasses a day on average, and 44% agree that’s not enough.
86% of Canadians are aware of the amount of water they should be drinking each day, yet only 56% think they drink enough.
Although we are fortunate in Canada as water is right at our finger tips, 47% would still rather drink something else other than water. 46% of Canadians said they would be more inclined to consume more water if it was more fun or tasted better.
Bring on the Sodastream machine! With a simple press on the machine, you can transform ordinary water into fresh sparkling water and flavoured sparkling water in just seconds. The idea is the water is more exciting and flavourful, encouraging you to drink more of it! The flavours contain a fraction of the calories, sugar and sodium of other soft drinks. And there is a great flavour selection – passion mango, fresh lemonade, and cranberry raspberry to name a few. And all contain no caffeine!
We were recently asked to try out the Sodastream machine – my kids were thrilled when it arrived. They went right to work trying different flavours – favourites for them are the Cranberry Raspberry and the Lemonade. My son also loved the diet Cola – I have to admit, I tried it and it tasted just like diet coke, without the caffeine and a lot less sugar!
