Happy Hydrating with 2Natural Blends!
Ellie Wilson, MS, RDN Senior Nutritionist
Water is essential – we cannot live without it. Our bodies feel and function best when well-hydrated, and water is the top pick to meet that need. We also need water to support good performance in sports or any physical activity. But, we struggle to stay hydrated – busy and distracted, whether working or playing – dehydration sneaks up on us, and is not easy to detect. Have you ever felt fatigued mid-afternoon even though you rested well the night before? Dehydration is often the culprit. Children are particularly vulnerable – and younger ones often uncooperative with parent efforts. Adding fruit can inspire better water intake. Cutting fruit up, finding a container that keeps the fruit in and lets the water out, making it easy to grab and go – those were tougher problems to solve, until a mom from upstate New York put it all together. Denise Wist tapped into a natural spring in her small town of Morris; invented a special recyclable bottle; and infused the spring water with cut fruit. Now a woman-owned business, 2Natural Blends infused spring waters deliver a fresh take on healthy beverages. Busy moms, anyone looking for hydration options that are calorie-free or no added sugar will love exploring flavors like lemon-cucumber and pineapple-mango. Simple water, with a twist! We love supporting exciting, Northeast-based food business and we are happy to be the first retailer to share these fun refreshers! When it’s made or grown here, we get it here.
