Is drinking flavored water just as beneficial as regular water?

I need to drink more water but I'm NOT a fan of the tasteless water. I've been flavoring it with Ocean Spray flavor packets.....is it still the same since it is still water? I mean, does it still have the same health benefits drinking regular water has?

I'm a SAHM to 4 children, Mommy to Irish Twins, married to my best friend, breastfeeding, circumsizing, anti CIO, spanking when needed, kids don't get away with much, NIP and don't care what you see b/c my child has a right to eat, keep a clean house, non husband bashing, LOVE to laugh, smart ass kind of Mommy. Nice to meet you.

I just actually spoke with a nutritionist today and she said that flavored water or things like Crystal Light is fine for people that do not like plain water.

yes, as long as it is water. They have flavored beverages like at wal mart for like .68, they are more like drinking a sprite with other flavors. .What i do is but bottled water and add strawberry kiwi with added vitamins to the water. It is like that kool aid singles.
