Infruition's mission is to help people to drink more water naturally. The concept is simple: a standard re-usable water bottle with a chamber to store fruit, veg, herbs, tea - whatever you like, which over the day infuses your water with your chosen flavour.

Aspartame is what gives the sweetness to many diet drinks, yoghurts and low fat foods and it's everywhere. The NHS refutes what it calls these scare stories but I'll leave you to make up your own mind.

The bottles are very sturdy and well made. They are made from 100% BPA free plastic and stain resistant materials.
You can put the actual bottle in the dishwasher but the fruit chamber and caps need to be hand-washed.

The fruit chamber can be filled with a selection of chopped fruit. We tried strawberries but you could add mint leaves and blueberries. Or, you could try orange, kiwi and watermelon. You could even add a herbal tea-bag for, say, a cold mint tea in summer.

Also there is a rubber bung in the lid which can be taken out and I am assuming it has to be in order to wash it but it wasn't entirely clear. The fruit chamber has to be screwed in to the lid with care, being made of a thinner plastic than the bottle.
You do have to turn the bottle so that the cap is on the side when you drink if you're a glasses wearer. (You know what I'm like about my glasses!).
Once the kids had drunk some water they wanted to get the fruit out and eat it, which was not a problem but it would mean dismantling the bottle when you're out and about.
On the plus side, if my two drink more water and eat more fruit, that's fine by me!
The adult Infruition bottle is £15.99 and the Infruition Kids bottles are £12.99. They are available on the Infruition website.
I think the bottles would make a great Christmas gift for the health-conscious family, or your favourite gym bunny.
