  • water and milk.

    kids can drink water andnot get bored by it. if you push the bored thing, then he'll whine and cry and you'll regret even mentioning another option.

  • I dilute my son's juice too, although I don't give him juice very often. When I do, its about 1/4 juice and the rest water. Water may seem boring, but its good to get them used to it!

  • I don't know about the propel water because I don't drink it but I wouldn't give that to my son at that age. My son always liked when I put real pieces of fruit in his diluted juice, he still likes that actually. I did that to get him used to liking to drink mostly water. You could try doing that if you think your son would like flavored water better. Just cut small pieces of fruit like cherries, oranges, lemons, limes, take the peel off, or whatever fruit your son likes and put it in the water. My son always liked to drink it all because then I'd let him eat the fruit at the bottom lol.

  • Just water. Cow's milk is for baby cows. Kids are only supposed to have 2 servings milk products a day max and they don't need any. There are so many things kids like that have milk in them that drinking milk would be just too much. There are many reasons not to drink milk and no compelling reasons to drink it.

    Propel has artificial sweeteners in it. Not good for kids.

    People are supposed to drink water, it's not tiring!

  • We couldn't afford juice and I just started giving my boys water all the time. Now they come up to me and ask for water! In fact, my older son often chooses water over juice! They'll adjust.

  • Water is good for you. Drink lots of it. You don't need "fun" drinks. Water is for life.
