Make Water Your New Normal

Facts About Staying Hydrated

Posted by: Alliance for a Healthier Generation

Why? You've probably heard about "hydration," or "staying hydrated." The need to hydrate is just another way of saying, "Drink plenty of fluids throughout the day." But not just any fluids—because the kinds of liquids kids drink are just as important as the foods they eat.

Why water? Your child's body is made up of about 60 percent water and that water plays an essential role in every system of your child's body.1

What about soda? You might be thinking, "Sodas have water, right?" That's true, but sodas don't add vitamins or nutrients. Also, consider this: There are about 250 calories in a 20 oz. soda served at a restaurant.2 With only a few free refills, you might be drinking 750 calories!
