- Encourage your children to eat foods that have high amounts of water, for example: pears, cucumbers, lettuces, tomatoes, watermelons and grapes.
- Rather than just pouring water into cups and glasses, get the children to pour ice-water into a large jug. Encouraging children to handle food and water influences that child to eat and drink more.
- Water-play – have fun using water guns, balloon bombs and paddling pools this summer, children don’t just need water on the inside but outside as well to help keep them refreshed!
- Drinking early! By the time a child is thirsty they are already dehydrated! http://www.webmd.com/parenting/active-child-hydrated
So have a good summer this 2014!
