Water, Water, Water . . .
Did you know that when you were born, you were made up of 75% water?
Did you know that water makes up about 60% of kid and adult bodies?
Did you know that people can survive for up to 40 days without food, but only a few days without drinking water?
Did you know water helps you and your child think (and play!) by improving your memory, attention, and motor skills?
Make a goal with your child to drink more water every day!
Here are some tips to help you out:
Get special water bottles that you both can refill throughout the day.
Do not have sugary drinks, such as soda or energy drinks in the house. Drinking sugary beverages makes it more difficult for you and your child to choose water.
Add fruits and herbs, such as lemons, limes, or mint leaves to naturally flavor your water.
