  • Crystal light on the go. They also have propel, or Sugar free coolaid. But you might want to watch out for the artificial sweeteners in the sugar free stuff.

  • Try a spritzer: 1 - 2 Tablespoons juice, fill the rest of the way with water. I have 20 oz. glasses that I put 2 Tbsp. juice in; for smaller glasses I use 1 Tablespoon. Cranberry, strawberry, raspberry and peach juices seem to work the best. You get the flavor with only a little sugar added.

  • they have flavored water out there that is good. Or you can put berries of your choice into the water. Stay away from Crystal Light and all those other drinks they are nothing but chemicals. AS is all artifical sweetners.

  • I found a wonderful water flavor that has no sugar or additive but is a grape flavor that lets me drink a whole bottle of water straight down. Its very good, and I'm a person that prefers sweet tastes.
    I bought this at Kroger in the aisle where you buy cola. I love it. It helps me get down more water.

    For mornings, I love to add a thin slice of fresh ginger to a small cup of hot water. I also add a touch of splenda, but that's prob. not so good for baby to be. I love the taste of ginger so it makes a fresh tasting drink that helps move the colon in the mornings. :) sorry, tmi.

  • I like crystal light. And when I had gestational diabetes they TOLD me to use splenda instead of sugar. My daughter is 3 now and perfectly fine.

  • Avoid Vitamin Water, whatever you do!

    And avoid artificial sweeteners... they cause cancer in EVERY lab test.
