Water vs. juice? These flavored waters let you have the best of both worlds.

Fruit's much healthier in solid form rather than as juice. But tell that to your sugar-craving kiddos, who've gotten wise to your watering-it-down trick. They want juice, you want them to drink more water -- can't we all just get along?

The creators of Bot have come up with a delicious compromise. Bot fortified water comes in cute bottles in kid-fave flavors like orange, berry, lemon, and grape. The drink, made from filtered, deionized water, has 75 percent less sugar than juice and is also packed with vitamins (but no artificial colors, preservatives, or sweeteners). But how does it taste? Like watered-down Vitamin Water. It might not be as sweet as what your kids are used to, but it might be enough to get them off the juice box.
