My daugter Loves water. She asks for it over juice. Here in the south we give our kids sweet tea. The first dirk my lo had, her grandpa was holding her, and drinking from a straw... Sweet tea. She grabbed the straw and tried to take a drink. He used the straw as a dropped and then she was going to find a way. We have never used traditional sippy ups. We used the toddler straw cups. We just watered down tea or other drinks. I think she forogt about formula. In part we had also transitioned to pedisure and then carnation good start. It is great to get the vitamins the toddler can lack from food. My lo didn't like vitamins so the C.GoodStart made up for that.
You mix the CarnationGoodStart with milk. There is some premixed, a bowder container similar to formula and travel packs. I made sure to put them in my lo's over night bag in ase she wouldn't eat at grandma's or other relatives.
