    My DS who is 2 will not drink water straight no matter what. He does however have cordial very diluted. We keep gradually diluting it more and more. He knows if it's just water though. But he also drinks cows milk.

    Thanks for everyone's replies, you have all pretty much confirmed how I have been feeling that the cordial is not a good way to go. I will persevere with water (he does drink it, just not as much as I would like) or try some freshly squeezed orange in water with his dinner.

    Could you perhaps get a jug filled with water, and put in some segments of orange, strawberries etc, so it looks really nice?

    Something like this perhaps ImageUploadedByThe Bub Hub1425284105.113767.jpg

    Some things to try...
    Drink ICY water with frozen fruit like grapes in the water next to the ice cubes.
    Drink it and enjoy it together - ahhhhhhhh! Nothing like a cool glass of water when you're really thirsty. (Although I'm happy to drink from the tap )
    Novelty cups/straws or new water bottles.
    Have a glass bottle of water on the table with every meal and use it to fill everyone's cup/glass with it.

    If he loves oranges how about frozen orange juice ice cubes or frozen orange segments in the water?

    I flavor my water with lemon juice. Would this work?

    Plain water can be boring I agree.

    I love putting a few frozen strawberries in water. As they defrost, they let off a really sweet juice that tastes just like cordial. This might be a better option, then just stock up on strawberries when they're on sale to keep you going through winter.

    I can't believe how many kids don't like water. My kids don't like it out of a bottle but they like it out of pump bottle, normal glass.

    Never cordial etc in our house.

    I've tried the lemon juice which he didn't like unfortunately, I love lemon squeezed in water! I will try the frozen strawberries as well as he loves them! Thanks
    I tipped the cordial down the sink last night so he can't see it, now he has no option but water! Now to tell my mother in law no more cordial, that's going to go down well - "all children need sugary drinks or they will get dehydrated!" *rolls eyes*
