5 Tips To Keep Kids Hydrated Always

Kids needs to take a lot of fluid throughout the day to avoid dehydration. Most parents are concerned about their kids fluid intake during the summer time, because the weather is hot and they sweat a lot. We easily remember to give them more fluid during this period, but just because summer is over doesn't mean fluid intake should stop.


Its important for kids to have a lot of fluid available from time to time. Most kids are active all day long and needs fluid to replace their lost of water. Drinks are very important to keep young children healthy and hydrated.


5 tips on how to keep your kids hydrated;

1) The first thing to offer a kid when thirsty is water, this is heathy and can easily replace lost fluid in their body. You can also serve them some milk (white or chocolate). Fruit juice can also be offered but should be 100% and limited to snack times only.

2) Sugary drinks and pop should be avoided, such as fruit punch or fruits drinks made from package powders. If you need to give them juice go for 100% fruit juice and should be limited to 125-175ml per day.

3) Look out for juice with the words 'no artificial flavors or colors added' 'fruit juice from concentrate' 'unsweetened' 'made with real fruits'.

4) Coffee, cola, energy drinks, tea, sport drinks, should be avoided because they contain caffeine. These drinks can over stimulate your child and make them loose more fluid.

5) Always read the ingredient list of the drinks you buy for your kids, avoid any drink that has sugar or any form of glucose as part of its ingredients.

  1. Great tips! We do water and water with a splash of juice. When they're allowed to have an occasional clear fizzy drink we always water those down too. Water is best for hydration! Great post.

  2. Nice tips, thanks for sharing them! My son actually prefers water over juices which is great! We also give him Redbush tea which is caffeine free and low in tannins so doesn't inhibit iron absorption.

  3. These are great tips! I started my kids young with water and I didn't and still don't give them anything but water and milk! The only time they have juice is at parties and it has worked so far :)

  4. We really try to keep sugary drinks away from our son. he's still very young, so we hate to give him a taste for it.

  5. I avoid keeping soda at home . Water in an earthen pot keeps it cool, within reach and the kids love it. Once in a while lemonade or coconut water does the trick to keep them hydrated

  6. Some really good tips there. I don't have children, but I'm the worst at keeping myself hydrated! I also love juice, so to cut calories, I add half water to it...not as tasty, but works for me.

  14. I think another great tip is to have a water bottle handy always. As soon as the kids get up, we fill their water bottles and continue refilling throughout the day. If it's handy, my 2yo will drink it, no questions asked.
