With these summer temperatures soaring, it’s important for your children to stay properly hydrated. Keeping your children hydrated will prevent scary incidents of heat cramps, heat exhaustion and heat stroke. Water is the most important element of preventing dehydration but it can be a hassle convincing kids to drink enough water. Instead of just drinking good ol’ H2O, here are some surefire ways to make sure your kids are staying hydrated!
Eating water rich foods is an easy way to make sure your children are receiving their water intake, as well as making sure they maintain their diet. Watermelons are made up 92% water, tomatoes are 95% water and oranges are 87% water. Eating these foods will provide your children with plenty of water!
Would your kids rather have juice than water? Well now you both can have what you want! You are still making sure your kids are staying hydrated and they are drinking a yummy drink! What more could you ask for?
You can also add a tasty treat in your children’s water! Frozen fruit ice cubes, inspired by the recipe on the blog, Babble, offer your kids a delicious surprise at the bottom of their glass, fresh fruit! The ice cubes can also add a bit of flavor to dull water and juice. Quick tip: use ripe fruit for a sweeter taste! For extra fun, use an ice tray with fun shapes so the ice looks cool inside of the cup!
