Fruit Infused Water Combinations: With summer around the corner, how about ditching the juice boxes and soda and create a healthy fruit infused water instead? The beauty of making your own infused waters is that you can create any combination that your kids, or you, desire and add as little or as much fruit into your drink! Let the kids choose the fruit combinations for upcoming infused water while doing your weekly grocery shopping.
