Pink Lemonade

SERVES: 1 litre

To maintain immune systems and help little people absorb iron better, it’s key to keep vitamin C levels up. And these are lovely drinks to see them through summery days and hot afternoons when hydration is so crucial and water can seem boring.

Pink lemonade is a cinch to put together, and thirst-quenchingly delicious. A perfect picnic or party number, this summery drink is one that kids adore and it’s packed with goodness. Lemons have a heavy vitamin C hit, and the tasty zest is strong in antioxidants. The lemonade’s antibacterial greatness will also remove toxins and boost digestion. Stir and slurp on a sunny afternoon. Zero bad guys here.

Stir the lemon zest, lemon juice and maple syrup together in a small jug. Decant into a wide-rim bottle along with the sparkling water. Stir, refrigerate and whip out for thirsty guzzles.
