Creating a healthy America
About a month ago, my 9yr old came home from school and
asked me to get him something special for his lunches, on the next trip to the grocery store. Imagine my surprise when he asked for a mini can of orange soda! Apparently, one of his classmates has a mini can of orange soda in her lunch EVERY DAY. Of course, he received a hearty dose of "the Mom look", his hopes dashed. I'm okay with that.
It's funny how, as new parents, we are so careful about what we feed our babies.
We sanitize everything that they touch and that touches them. Then, somehow, our concern about their healthy diets is diminished and we start applying the "seconds" rule when they drop something on the floor. Their sugar-free diet is thrown out the window the first time they actively participate in Halloween. (When my daughter was 3, she became a M-n-M addict post Halloween) Soon, our busy schedules, filled to the brim with all of their activities annihilate the possibility of family dinners, making way for delivered pizzas, fast food stops and quick to make meals, pack full of countless unhealthy ingredients.
As appalling as the statistics are, we really aren't that surprised or shocked to hear that one in three children in the United States are considered overweight, are we?
When offered the opportunity to both test an promote WAT-AAH!, I was very excited! Thank goodness someone is marketing a healthy drink for kids!
"Our kids may be the first generation in history to have shorter life expectancy than their parents. Sugar is ruining their childhood and destroying their future. I created WAT-AAH! with the belief that the right marketing could lead to a positive change by building a desire for a product that kids already know is good for them, but until now has been perceived as boring. WAT-AAH! combines simple functional benefits of water with edge, contemporary and relevant marketing and personality to provide kids the first true sugar free alternative to soda that is cool."
When my daughter arrived home from high school, she said that EVERYONE was asking her about her WAT-AAH! From the students in each of her classes, to others stopping her in the hallways, everyone wanted to know about WAT-AAH!
Likewise, in my son's 3rd grade class, WAT-AAH! created quite a stir. All of his classmates found it necessary to stop by my son's desk to check out his bottle and matching WAT-AAH! tattoo.
WAT-AAH is available in four varieties:
BRAIN - blue graphic bottle, filled with ultra purified water with electrolytes
POWER - orange graphic bottle, filled with ultra purified water with magnesium
BODY - pink graphic bottle, filled with pure spring water
ENERGY - green graphic bottle, filled with ultra purified water and energized oxygen
WAT-AAH! contains NO sodium, NO chemicals and NO sugar!
Get your kids excited about drinking WAT-AAH!
Not only is the packaging marketed for kids, the WAT-AAH! websites are all for them, as well. My son and I viewed the information on www.drinkwataah.com together and he absolutely loved the site, from the interactive menus to the ultra-cool comercials and information tabs.
Of kids who have taste tested WAT-AAH!, 99% of them preferred WAT-AAH! to soda!
I received sample of WAT-AAH! to test for the purposes of creating this review and WAT-AAH! is supplying the prize for this giveaway. I fully support WAT-AAH!s efforts to encourage kids to drink water instead of sugar-filled drinks and the opinions expressed within are my own.
