Try putting some of the crystal lite in a bottle of water? Not the whole package. Or by flavored waters? I had to do that with my daughter to get her to drink water

Have it in a cup w a straw or a straw sippy. My dd loves to have water out of my nalgene thru a straw. I also water down her juice.

Same, she never had a problem with it and she's almost 5. We don't offer juice or soda though

maybe try putting food coloring in it?  Make it fun?!  I don't know.. good luck!  My kids like to drink it from the bottle... instead of a cup.

Offer only water so she knows theres no other choices. Try with drinking with straws instead of sippu cups.

Do YOU drink water?  Does he see you with it?  Water is all we drink in our house, so both my kids love water.  Have never had issues with it.  They have their own "grown up" cups for water and everything.
