Summer Refreshments
Refreshments for Summer

You know it’s summertime when you hear that ice-cream van come down the road! Nothing makes adults and kids more excited than a cool refreshing ice-cream or ice drink in the warm summer months.

.

But why wait for the ice-cream van when you can make your own summer refreshments. All you need is lots of fresh fruit and some delicious Magnesium Mineralized Water – a perfect addition to your homemade summer refreshments!

Ice is water too!

It is common knowl­edge that drinking water is healthy and impor­tant for our bodies. An adult needs an average of 6 to 8 cups or glasses a day 1 . Prefer­ably water, of course! In the warmer months, drinking lots of fluids is impor­tant. It is also partic­u­larly impor­tant for chil­dren (between the ages of four and seven years) to consume suffi­cient fluids throughout the day, just about 6-8 glasses of fluid a day, using smaller glasses (150-200ml) for younger children.2 . That doesn't sound like that much, but parents know exactly how diffi­cult it can be to get their little ones to stay hydrated. An ice-lolly is the perfect way of treating your child to an ice lolly whilst ensuring they stay hydrated! As a bonus, why not use Magne­sium Miner­al­ized Water to enhance the taste of your ice lolly? Parents and chil­dren will quickly become a fan of Magne­sium Miner­al­ized ice-lollies!

The perfect combi­na­tion: water & magne­sium

Magne­sium plays an impor­tant role in strength­ening bones and teeth for chil­dren. However, since the human body is unable to produce this mineral on its own, it must be consumed with food and drink exter­nally. As a rule, this require­ment can be met with a balanced diet: Magne­sium is found, for example, in leafy vegeta­bles, whole grain prod­ucts and oat flakes, but also in fish, vegeta­bles and nuts. But as all parents know, it can be diffi­cult to get your child to eat a healthy foods every day, creativity is often required! That’s where the home­made ice lolly from Magne­sium Miner­al­ized Water comes in handy - as a clever and cool addi­tion to healthy drinking and eating. If kids let a ice lolly made of Magne­sium Miner­al­ized Water melt on their tongues, they are already consuming an extra helping of magne­sium. If a child drinks just under a litre of Magne­sium Miner­al­ized Water per day, it contains around 20 milligrams of magne­sium.3 . The daily require­ment of small chil­dren is around 80 milligrams of magne­sium4.
