Kids need to stay hydrated to be healthy, especially in hot weather. Keeping your kids hydrated ensures they’re not only happy but active too. Kids tend to lose water easier than adults so keeping them hydrated is a must. Here are a few reasons why hydrated kids are happy kids.
Hydrated kids are more active
Keeping hydrated replaces any lost moisture. Not drinking enough fluids can cause fatigue and headaches so making sure children regularly drink fluids will help to keep them active. If kids are taking part in activities in the sun it’s very important to make sure they wear lightweight clothing and take regular sips of water or juice. Children should also be encouraged to drink fluids as soon as they feel thirsty in order to avoid over heating or dehydration. Making sure children don’t spend too much time in the sun will also help with avoiding dehydration.
