Default Date And Time Problem

I have a mysql table column has a date field type which the format is 0000-00-00. Another column is for time format in mysql 00:00:00

So I got dropdown box to let user choose from 00 ~ 23. It is a 24hr format.
I have a drop down box created with some coding using php.
How can i use store this variable $date into the date column?
So how do I change it such that the value can be accepted as a date format?

echo "<tr>";
        echo "<td>Date:</td>";
        echo "<td>";
                echo "<select name = 'date'>";
                $current_date = date("Y-m-d",time());
                while ($i<7){
                $add_date = date("d-m-Y",strtotime("$current_date + $i days"));
                echo "<option>$add_date</option>";
                echo "</select>";
        echo "</td>";
        echo "</tr>";
$sdate = $_POST['date']; 

echo "<tr>";
        echo "<td>End Time:</td>";
        echo "<td>";
        echo "<select name='betimes'>";
         foreach ($btimes as $etime){
          echo "<option>$etime</option>";
        echo "</select>";  
        echo " : 00";
        echo "</td>";   
        echo "</tr>";

$etime = $_POST['betimes'];
