Evian for Kids
Wednesday, September 3, 2008
One thing I know from experience as a mom is kids like to feel special. Feeling special for kids can be something as mundane as getting them their own kids meal at a burger joint or giving them their very own bottle of water at home or packed in their lunch box or even out and about around town .
My daughters who are ten and seven are big on having their own everything! Where once they were happy to share, now they are into things being separate. That's why I think Evian Les Petits is such a great idea. Kids can stay hydrated with their own water bottle instead of toting around bottles of sugar-laden juices and sodas and they won't feel they're missing out when they see other kids running around with sodas or juice boxes.
Evian Les Petits are mini 330mL water bottles designed for little hands.
