Why water is the best drink for kids

We know that all liv­ing things need wa­ter to sur­vive. Wa­ter makes up more than half of our body weight and with­out it our bod­ies would stop work­ing prop­er­ly. While many chil­dren do drink wa­ter, par­ents some­times al­so of­fer their chil­dren milk or fruit juices think­ing they need the cal­ci­um or ex­tra vi­t­a­mins. And many chil­dren al­so in­dulge in sug­ar-sweet­ened drinks such as juice drinks, soft drinks and flavoured milks. Here’s why wa­ter is still the best choice to sat­is­fy your child’s thirst.

Ben­e­fits of drink­ing wa­ter

When your children drink water reg­u­lar­ly through­out the day, they will stay hy­drat­ed. This is es­pe­cial­ly im­por­tant in our hot cli­mate and when your chil­dren are very ac­tive as wa­ter helps to reg­u­late our in­ter­nal tem­per­a­ture. Our blood, which car­ries life-giv­ing oxy­gen to our cells, con­tains a lot of wa­ter. Wa­ter is al­so in our lym­phat­ic sys­tem, which is an im­por­tant part of our im­mune sys­tem, keep­ing us healthy and help­ing us to fight off ill­ness­es. In ad­di­tion, we need wa­ter to prop­er­ly di­gest our food, elim­i­nate waste and to help avoid con­sti­pa­tion.
