Health Tip: Make Sure Kids Drink Enough Water

(HealthDay News) -- If kids don't drink enough water, every part of their body won't function properly, health experts say.

The Nemours Foundation offers these tips for parents to make sure kids are staying hydrated:

  • Water and milk are the best fluid choices for kids. Offer them plenty of fruit as well, since it has high water content.
  • Encourage children to drink with meals and any time they are thirsty.
  • Make sure children drink more water when the weather is warm, especially if they are outdoors.
  • Encourage drinking water before, during and after sports practice or a game.
