the active lifestyle that most children lead, it is important for them
to quench their thirst with water. Replacing sweetened beverages with
water is a great way to not only keep them hydrated, but also to lower
a child’s calorie intake, and Evian Les Petits offers a pure, fun and
natural way for kids to enjoy water.

“Water is an
important part of maintaining a healthy lifestyle for children, and we
want to help parents to encourage their children to drink more of it,”
said Jeff Caswell, VP of Marketing for Evian North America. “Evian Les
Petits is a great solution for Canadian parents, especially those with
an on-the-go lifestyle, who always want to make sure their children are
hydrated and replenished, whether at school, playing sports, at the
playground or in the car.”

Evian has created fun
graphics to complement the new bottles and packaging. Easily held by
kids, these miniature bottles utilize Evian’s signature pink and blue
colours with some added kid-friendly flair. The new artwork features
graphics of trendy, urban mothers with their children, as well as
images of colourful sea creatures.

A 330ml Evian
Les Petits bottle will fit neatly into a child’s lunch bag or go
perfectly with their favourite healthy after-school snack.

Les Petits will be available in stores across Canada, such as select
Loblaws, Dominion/A&P, Couche-Tard, Wal-Mart Ontario, and IGA,
beginning in August with a suggested retail price of $5.99.
