You could also try plain soda or mineral water , DS has soda water for dinner and mineral water when we eat out - the kids love the bubbles!

Cordial or water?
Also for an update, DS has now only had water for 2 days, and 1 glass of fresh squeezed orange juice diluted today which he really liked! Yay

Cordial or water?
Sparkling water is carbonated water ( just plain water - can be called soda water or tonic water ) whereas mineral water contains minerals and can be still or sparkling ( eg: Perrier is a sparkling mineral water)
Mineral water is great as it contains natural minerals like calcium, magnesium and sodium - just buy the ones lowest in sodium for kids ( we drink santa Vittoria or Perrier )
DS loves it but we only let him have it for dinner as I still think it's important to have him used to plain water during the day - he loves ordering his glass of mineral water with dinner at restaurants, he usually requests a lime wedge and ice which always amuses the waiters!

Our water is terrible (it's pumped from the river and treated, it tastes awful). We filter and refrigerate it and it's drinkable, but there's bit of an after taste that the girls don't like. I put a bit of diet cordial (or the no added sugar type) in it and it helps. We make it up fairly weak so it's just removing the weird taste

I wonder if kids just drink more than what they need liquid wise if it's juice or cordial?
I don't notice DD drinking large amounts of water (mouthfuls here and there over the course of the day) but if she is at my Mum's place she would if unchecked drink tonnes of juice. I don't assume she is going thirsty the rest of the time, I just assume she is drinking a lot because it's juice and it is sweet.
Not sure if that makes sense.

I think most of us will eat/drink things we love even if we're not actually hungry or thirsty

We have a soda ****** and mr 3 loves it. It's a bit of a treat and so much better than having to buy soda water.
On the drinking extra liquids because it's juice, mr 3 seems to think that water is a drink when you're thirsty and juice/cordial etc is something else. Often if he has a juice or something with dinner, he will also request water to drink. I think it's absolutely a possibility that they are drinking the juice etc just because it's nice
