To make snack time even more fun and enjoyable we have put together some of our favourite healthy drinks to enjoy with your children and their Sip n Sound Straws.
Sugar Free Fruit Soda
Is your little one addicted to fizzy drinks? This all natural, sugar free soda will easily have them swapping the cola for this healthy alternative.

Blend your strawberries until you have a smooth puree, run through a sieve to remove any excess lumps and seeds. Once finished take two tablespoons of your puree and add the carbonated water, you now have a wonderfully healthy fizzy drink to delight your kids!
The best part is you can keep the remainder of the puree in a sealed jar in a fridge for up to a week, meaning you can re-create this drink quickly and hassle free.
