Fruit Flavored Water: How Much Water Do Your Kids Need? – Define Bottle
  • How Much Water Do Your Kids Need?

    Water is an essential nutrient to you and your kid's bodies. While people can live up to 6 weeks without food, you won't live more than a week without water. Water is the foundation for all of your body's functions. Our Define Bottle makes it easier than ever to get your children to drink the water they need and it comes in a variety of colors and sizes that you'll both love! Do you know how much water your children need? Today we're going to discuss daily water recommendations for children.

    It's important to understand that the daily amount of water that your child or teenager needs will depend on a few factors like weight, age, and gender. Their activity level, the air temperature, and their overall health are also considerations and will affect their daily water needs, too. While your child's daily water recommendation may seem like a lot, it's important that you remember that these water totals include water from all mediums: drinking water, food, and other beverages. Your child will be able to get a lot of water from water-rich foods like fruits and vegetables - another great reason your child should eat more of these foods.

    As a general rule of thumb, your children or teenagers should be drinking around 6 to 8 cups of water on a daily basis while also eating the recommended amount of fruits of vegetables.
