Ideally speaking, children need between 1.5-2 litres of water a day, although this depends on their age, build, activity levels and more. Most often, kids aren’t aware of how much water they need even if they lose a lot of sweat. Drinking enough water has a number of health benefits for children, some of them are mentioned below:
Flushes out Toxins
Consuming more water eliminates toxins from the organs thereby preventing illnesses. Once toxins are flushed out, the nutrients that children consume can be carried throughout the body more efficiently.
Using a water filter can be of great help in maintaining the nutrient levels in a child’s body. Traditional ways of purification eliminate nutrients, but reverse osmosis, TDS controllers and mineraliser technology add back lost nutrients. It is very important to buy a water purifier that offers it all to ensure that your child is consuming nothing but the best.
Water Contains Fluoride
Fluoride is known to be good for oral health. When buying a water purifier, make sure it has a TDS Controller that controls the number of dissolved solids being eliminated and retains nutrients like fluoride in the right quantities.
Prevents Dehydration and Improves Concentration
Children are constantly active, playing, attending classes, and tend to lose a lot of sweat, which may result in dehydration. Dehydration may also lead to low attention span, weaker memory, and motor skills. Make sure your child consumes enough water throughout the day so that he/she is fit and focused all day long.
If your child suffers from migraines, it is essential that he/she drinks plenty of water. No dehydration means no headaches or migraines.
Reduces Aerated Drink Consumption
Get your child into the habit of carrying around a water bottle and refilling it from a water filter. This has also an added advantage o that he/she doesn’t feel the urge to go out and purchase sugary beverages, which prove to have adverse effects on health. Water is fat-free and isn’t even loaded with calories, unlike sweetened beverages.
