Why water Is Important for Kids?

THE BENEFITS OF DRINKING WATER

Besides getting your kids to drink plenty of milk each day, be sure you don’t forget the H2O! Although it has no nutrients, water is essential to your child’s health. It makes up more than half of kids’ body weight and is needed to keep all parts of the body functioning properly.

Some of the benefits of drinking water include:

  • Digestion support
  • Constipation prevention
  • Proper blood circulation

Water also helps transport nutrients and oxygen to cells, regulate body temperature, and maintain electrolyte (sodium) balance.

Here are a few other facts about water to keep in mind:

WaterThere’s no specific amount of water recommended for children, but it’s a good idea to give them water throughout the day — not just when they’re thirsty.
LimesIf your child doesn’t like the taste of water, add some lemon or lime for flavor.
StrawberriesFruits and veggies are also good sources of water.
SunshineKids should drink more water when they’re ill, when it’s hot out, and when they’re physically active.
