4 Tips for Keeping Your Kids Hydrated This Summer, From NY's Water Purification Specialists, Henrietta, New York

For many kids, summer is a time for sports, hikes, and playing outside until well after dark. While these activities are healthy, children tend to lose fluids more quickly than adults, so it's important to keep them hydrated during the hot and humid months. Below are a few tips for keeping your children well-hydrated, courtesy of the water purification specialists at Anderson Water Systems, serving Rochester, Buffalo, and Syracuse, NY.

4 Tips for Making Sure Your Children Stay Hydrated

1. Add Healthy Drinks to Every Meal

Juice can be hydrating, but you might not want to give your children that much sugar; the best thing you can do is help your kids develop a taste for water. If they're particularly active, a salty snack can replace the electrolytes they've lost through sweat.

2. Take Frequent Water Breaks

According to the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, children need between five and seven glasses of water a day, especially if they're outside playing. Encourage them to take a little water break every 20 minutes or so while they're outside, doing so in the shade whenever possible.

3. Freeze Water Bottles

On a hot day, nothing is as refreshing as an ice-cold drink of water. If your kids are going to be outside, put a few bottles of water in the freezer the night before and take them out in the morning. By the time they're ready, the water will be cold and delicious.

4. Install a Water Purification System

Minerals and other contaminants can give your tap water a strange taste, which will make it harder to get children to drink it. Today's advanced water purification systems can remove excess calcium, iron, arsenic, and any other contaminants, leaving your water as clean and pure as possible.
