Like most people these days, our family does not get enough fruit and vegetables (although this week Ross and I are in the process of making a complete and utter change to this). So, when Root7 contacted me to ask if we would like to try the Kid Zinger for Grace, I was really impressed. What a great piece of innovation.
The Kid Zinger is, in effect, a water bottle with a difference. What you are able to do is infuse the water with your child’s favourite citrus fruit. This means an easy way to help your children choose a healthy alternative to their drinking habits. Not only does it mean that they drink more water, it also gives them a boost with the daily vitamins they need as well helping them make it part of their 5 a day.
The fruit combination is endless. You can try anything from orange to strawberry and and peach as well as adding some mint.
The Zinger itself is really easy to use. Simply turn the bottle over, unscrew the bottom cup and twist half of a citrus fruit into the citrus press. Screw the bottom cup back on and fill the bottle with water. The fruit’s pulp, rind and seeds are all contained in the bottom of the bottle to continue with the infusing.

The recommended shelf life for any of your infusions are 3 days and they should stay chilled after they are mixed. However, if you are going to drink your creation within 12 hours then refrigeration is not necessary.
What did Grace think? Well. we tried it with orange the first time she took it to school and to be honest she wasn’t overly keen! I think we are going to have to trial a few different flavours before she finds the one for her! I am certain that this will be a great way to implement more fruit into her diet.
