Staying hydrated makes more sense when it's hot, right? Our kids play, sweat, and us parents have to make sure they drink enough… Apparently proper hydration is just as important during winter time. Warm clothing and layers increase your child's sweating during winter, research shows that some common winter illnesses are caused by dehydration, among them flu and norovirus.
Here are some tips and habits to keep your kid hydrated all year long;
- Water in food - rich vegetables and fruits
Adding those healthy and tasty vegetables and fruits to your kids lunch box or meals on a daily basis can do wonders for his health and well being!
Fruits: Apple, Oranges, Grapes, Pineapple, Strawberries
Vegetables: Carrots, Broccoli, Lettuce, Celery, Spinach
- Develop a habit to drink strategically a few times a day
Make it a habit for your child to drink water when he or she wakes us, before they go to sleep, before and after play time. Embrace water drinking as a daily, fun activity!
- Add liquid foods to your kids diet
Yummy soups or smoothies contribute to good hydration and health- simplicity is key… that’s why chicken soup is for the most part on the top of your child's list!
- Get your kid a Gululu bottle
This way your kid will interact and make friends with the Gululu pet, will bond and take care of it as he drinks more water, parents will track kids’ water intake and can have the peace of mind knowing your kids are water- smart all year long!
