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.
