Keeping children hydrated


drinking-waterDuring these hot summer days it’s really important to keep your Little Ones hydrated, here’s some helpful tips:

 

  • 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!
