Back to School Infused Water Recipes for Kids with Primo Water

No more staying up late and sleeping in for my girls. We are going to bed at a reasonable time and, sadly, waking up at 6 AM because school is back in session. It’s going to be rough, but I’m ready to get my kids back into a routine. Get your kids to drink more water during the day with my Back to School Infused Water Recipes, with Primo® water.

Green Living with Primo

My family and I love to recycle and compost as much of our waste as we can. It takes about 1,000 years for a plastic bottle to break down, and I want to do what I can to ensure my daughters have a healthy planet to live on in the future. Reusable is so important.

That’s why I love our new Primo hTRIO Bottom Loading Water Dispenser with Single Serve Coffee K-cup® Machine Built-In in the home. One 5-gallon refill bottle saves 1,100 single-use bottles from the landfill and ocean, and that makes me feel good. In addition to reducing waste, Primo water’s purification process reduces the presence of chlorine, bacteria, parasites, heavy metals, trace levels of pharmaceuticals and other contaminants.

How I Get My Kids to Drink More Water

I don’t like to keep juice in my home because my kids will ask for it all day every day. If given a choice between water or juice, my kids will always pick something fruity. Instead of the sugary juice option, I’ve been making infused fruity water for my girls. It’s a great alternative because it’s tasty and they are drinking water! There have been many times my oldest daughter would come home from school with a full water bottle, so I’ve been trying to come up with ideas to get her to WANT to drink more water during the day. I’m not there at school to bug and remind her to drink, so that’s why these fruit-infused waters are perfect. She now drinks her water, refills it at our Primo water dispenser, and then drinks more!

Did you know adding a water dispenser to your home results in your family drinking 25% more water? Water is an essential nutrient for the brain and with the Primo dispenser at kid-level, my kids can easily fill up their bottle by themselves.

Below are Ruari’s and Willa’s favorite Back to School Infused Water Recipes.

Back to School Infused Water Recipes in Jars

Raspberry, Orange, and Lemon Fruity Water

This is my girls’ favorite infused water. They LOVE fruit, and it’s always a top request of my Back to School Infused Water Recipes. This water is simple to make. Use one orange, a handful of raspberries, and a couple of slices of lemon. I recommend cutting off the lemon and orange rinds because they can be a little bitter.

Add the fruit to a jar and fill it with water from your Primo dispenser. This water will be good for roughly two days.

Cucumber Lime with Mint

While the girls love the super fruity water, I have to say this is my favorite. It’s sort of like a faux mojito. Add half a cucumber, one lime, and some mint to a jar. I like to muddle the lime and mint to bring out the flavors.

Add the fruit to a jar and fill it with water from your Primo dispenser. This water will be good for roughly two days.

Strawberry Lemonade Water

This water recipe is perfect for a warm day. Add a handful of chopped strawberries and one lemon (rind removed) to a jar.

Busy Mornings Made Easier

Our school mornings are a bit crazy, and I’m always in a rush. With our hTRIO Water Dispenser, my kids can fill their waters while I’m packing lunches. Another thing I love for these busy school mornings is the reusable, and simple to use, K-Cup® so I can brew a quick cup of coffee and get my kiddos to school. I don’t know about you, but I can’t function without a coffee first thing in the morning, and this has been a life-saver.

Bottle Refills

It’s so simple to refill your water at a Primo self-service water station. Find these stations at stores such as Walmart, Home Depot, Lowes, or at Fred Meyer for my Pacific Northwest Readers, or use the zip-code locator on the Primo website (don’t worry if it’s branded Glacier water, it’s the same company). You can purchase a non-spill cap, which makes it easier to refill your water bottle at a refill station. No spills!

Do you want to get a water dispenser for your home? Use the code, WATERGOALS25, 25% off a dispenser, with FREE fast shipping, plus a FREE coupon will be mailed for a 5-gallon bottle of Primo water and another will be in the box when delivered. It’s a great deal!

Drink Big. Drink Healthy.
