As a female adult, guidelines state I should drink 1.4-1.6 litres of water each day. As a busy mumboss with 2 young kids, and a ton of deadlines to meet, in reality, I drink far less.

Or make that, I used to drink far less…

I’ve been working with Robinsons over the last month and thanks to their fab new Fruit Drop service, the whole Broadbent family have been drinking the recommended amount of water each and every day! Yay!

So what exactly is Robinsons Fruit Drop? Well, just in case you missed my last post, here’s the lowdown…

Robinsons Fruit Drop is a fab new door to door service that delivers a 30-day supply of diluting no added sugar fruit squash and 0% sugar Squash’d delivered straight to your door in a wonderful wooden crate that means you don’t need to lug bottles back from the supermarket.

Pretty amazing huh?! So easy and convenient.

With so many delicious flavours in the range from lemon and pink grapefruit, apple, peach and summer fruits, it’s easy to drink your daily quota of water, something vital for big and little ones, alike. The boys alternated between drinks and adored every flavour with Xander, 4, declaring his favourite was ‘peach because it’s so delicious’ and Oliver plumping for, ‘ the orange and pineapple which tastes so fruity’.

There are so many health benefits to drinking more water and Robinsons offered a refreshing break when we enjoyed a Robinsons Thirsty Fun Day Out a few weeks ago. For our Thirsty Fun Day Out, we headed to our local trampoline centre, Jump Arena in Kirkstall, Leeds (read all about it here) where we jumped, bounced, played and even danced around the venue together, enjoying Robinsons as we went. I simply added the Robinsons Squash’d in Citrus (no added sugar) drops on-the-go into our water bottles so we could stop and drink whenever we needed to. Easy peesy, lemon squeezy!


The Robinsons Squash’d were perfect for car journeys too, long and short. As soon as we get into the car, the first things the kids request is a drink so keeping one of these waiting with their water bottles made my life easier, particularly on half term when we found ourselves dashing to and from play dates, cinema visits and time spent visiting friends and family far from home.

Below is the summer fruits flavour.

…Getting the boys to drink more water has honestly, never been easier.

    We’re tried out the Fruit Deop service as well. The Squash’d drinks are amazing. I’d also have to say I have drunk more water as a result of a adding a drop of Robinsons. Although I’m a big water drinker, it does make it all the more appealling. Your boys certainly seem to be making the most of Robinsons as well!

    Drinking water is so important, and we have been always encouraging our girls. Most of the time I get them drink just plain, but they often complain…. like the sound of the Robinsons Squash’d! Need to check it out! x

        I have a big problem drinking water (just do like plain water) but have started putting a cap full in a 1.5 lts water bottle and find that I am drinking much more as am trying to lose weight, I know it’s not the best but only way for me consume more liquids.

        Is this a good alternative to compensate drinking plain water?

        Grateful for comments and recommendations.

        I love Robinsons and find it’s a great alternative to water (which I also drink). Aim for 2 lts of water a day which helps with bloating and weight loss.
