It’s essential to keep kids (and adults too!) hydrated in hot weather. But you should resist the temptation to reach for a can or bottle soda – because these drinks are loaded with way too much sugar, not to mention chemicals, additives, and preservatives that are less than ideal.
The easiest way to avoid this happening is to always have a jug of Iced Tea ready and waiting in the refrigerator. But not just any Iced Tea. There are lots of good reasons why Rooibos should be your go-to tea of choice. And no shortage of refreshing recipes – this is one of our favorites.
The flavor is naturally sweet and refreshing. Yet it’s sugar-free, calorie-free…and therefore guilt-free. It’s a win-win as kids love the taste and everyone can drink as much as they like without compromising their health.
Rooibos is also caffeine-free. So, unlike many soft drinks, energy drinks, and iced coffee or tea it won’t get you and the kids buzzed up. It actually has the opposite effect – it contains magnesium, a substance that calms your system down.
Finally, Rooibos tea is organic and crammed with antioxidants. Research suggests these antioxidants can boost your immune system and help your body fight off infection. This is great news at any time of year, but especially when there’s a risk of catching Covid.
