Switch to something better – BRITA filtered water
For me, the main reason to swap straight-from-the-tap water for filtered water is for my kids. I’ve heard for quite some time that tap water contains chemicals like chlorine which – though it’s needed to help kill those nasties – can make the water smell and taste a bit funny (and, which my finicky kids clearly can pick up on). Some kids love water. My kids, not so much. Yes, they drink it, but if they had their way, they would live on juice.
I knew they weren’t getting enough water and figured filtered water might be the push they need to choose water over sugar-laden juice.
How much water should my kids drink anyway?
According to the NSW government Healthy Kids initiative, the recommended daily amount of fluids is:
- 5 glasses (1 litre) for 5 to 8 year olds
- 7 glasses (1.5 litres) for 9 to 12 year olds
- 8 to 10 glasses (2 litres) for 13+ years
Plus, kids should drink more if they live in a hot area (which we do) and are active (which they are).
Since switching to the Brita water filters, I’ve seen a massive change in their drinking habits. My kids love the idea of being able to fill the Brita jug, pour their own water and have clean, cold water on demand whenever they want. It’s part of their routine now – whenever they are thirsty, they know where to go to get water. And they don’t annoy me to do it for them (winning!).
Here are a few more reasons why we’re loving the Brita water filter (and we reckon you will too!).
It’s incredibly easy to use!
Turn on. Fill. Place in fridge. Pour. That’s it. The Marella jug holds 2.4 litres of water, which is just the perfect daily amount for me. Plus the Active water bottles, both with their own filters, hold 600mls of water, which is ideal for my two kids. Fill them up twice a day and they’ve made their daily water goal!
It makes water yummy
Okay, so not “juice” yummy. But nicer than that disinfectanty taste or smell that tap water often comes with.
It’s better than tap or bottled water
Without going into the nitty gritty scientificy stuff, BRITA filters significantly reduce chemical impurities like chlorine AND heavy metal impurities, such as lead.
The new MAXTRA+ Limescale filter, as the name suggests also reduces limescale, which is left behind from hard water and can ruin your kitchen kettles and coffee machines. In fact, these nifty new filters remove 50% more limescale than the standard MAXTRA+ filters. So you’ll ALWAYS have a morning coffee to wake up to while keep your espresso machines in great condition. And that’s important!
It can save you heaps of money
No more wasting money on bottled water! This is awesome news, not just for your bank account, but also for the environment. You can pick up a Marella Brita water jug for just $34 plus 12 months of filters for an additional $99!
