Challenger #64, Mississippi

Kari- mom of 4- went for The WAT-AAH! Challenge with her little ones. She was a skeptic at first... "My kids come home from school and the first thing they do is BEG me for Kool Aide, so I really couldn't see them choosing something with no colors AND no flavors... especially if it was just water."

The set up...

"So I placed the bottles in the fridge next to all of their favorite drinks, milk and our Brita pitcher just in time for the kids to come home from school to beg and plead for their "after school snack!"

The results...

"Like I had predicted the first thing the little ones did was run to the fridge screaming "Mommy I'm THIRSTY... Mommy I'm HUNGRY!" Right away they spotted the WAT-AAH! Interested to see what it was my oldest grabbed it and took a sip immediately. Not saying a word the others began to fight over the bottles. Needless to say I think WAT-AAH! won! They loved the bottles... and I loved the fact they were drinking water!!!!!"

Challenger #63, Wisconsin

Linda- took The WAT-AAH! Challenge with her grandchildren and she could not have been more excited about the results. Going from kids who never drink water... to fans of WAT-AAH! was more then this granny could ask for.

The results...

"Ally just loves it she has been carrying around the bottle and asks for it all the time. I think for her it is the bottle size, it fits in her little hand and she loves saying WAT-AAH!"

Challenger #62, New York

Dianne- Took The WAT-AAH! Challenge with her daughter. To no surprise she chose the WAT-AAH!

The results...

"My daughter, Chiara age 4, became a BIG WAT-AAH! fanatic! She loved the graphics on the bottle most of all. "

Challenger #61, Maryland

Heather, Mom of 3 boys- gave The WAT-AAH! Challenge a try! Here is what she had to say...

"I did the WAT-AAH! Challenge with my boys, ages 2 and 4 and I was shocked by the results. My 2 year old waffled at first then ended up picking soda, I think because it was the shiniest bottle in the fridge. But my 4 year old went straight for the WAT-AAH! And ever since we did the challenge, my 4 year old has been asking me where the yummy WAT-AAH! is! I guess I'm going to have to buy some for him!! :)"

Challenger #60, Utah

Autum- Tried The WAT-AAH! Challenge with her boys.

The results...

"I can tell you though that my boys were really drawn to the bottles because of the bright colors and the picture of the kid on it. They kept asking "Is this Water?", "Can we drink it?" "Why does it look like that?" I believe they chose it over the other drinks because of how interested they were in it based on just how it looked.Thank you again!!!"

Challenger #59, New York

Daniel along w/ his science class of 42 students took The WAT-AAH! Challenge as part of their Healthy Choices Festival. They kids all choose WAT-AAH! as their new favorite HEALTHY choice... replacing those UNHEALTHY drinks they had stocked in their fridges at home and in the cafeteria.

The results...

"Having your support in our unit of study is so important to us, as we have been learning a lot about empty calories and how it is really easy to drink our calories. I cannot tell you how psyched the kids are. They want more and more and more and we are so happy to see the sugary drinks gone (for good?). Many parents were asking about it too saying that now all their kids are asking for is this new water!!!"

Here are the kids enjoying WAT-AAH! and making it a part of their Healthy Choice Festival curriculum.

... But her son Jack (age 1.5) wouldn't let anyone else near the bottles!

Challenger #57, Nebraska

Emily- Busy Mom- Took The WAT-AAH! Challenge.

Here are the results...

"I tried this with both my son and my husband. My son is only 20 months old so he doesn’t drink pop anyways, but I let him look in the fridge. He knows the “usuals,” in our fridge, so he was drawn to these cool new bottles. As soon as my husband opened the door he said “Whats this??” looking interested. He tried it right away. I also tried the WAT-AAH! I was surprised, it actually tasted cleaner than other bottled waters."

Challenger #56, Utah

Autum tried The WAT-AAH! Challenge out with her kids. They were drawn immediately to the WAT-AAH! "I can tell you though that my boys were really drawn to the bottles because of the bright colors and the picture of the kid on it. They kept asking "Is this Water?", "Can we drink it?" It is the cool bottles and over all look that made her kids choose WAT-AAH!
