Children’s Nutritionist – Water

Your child’s body is approximately 80% water.  Water helps carry nutrients to tissues and remove metabolic wastes.  It is important to keep up their intake of fresh, filtered water to ensure healthy bodily function.  Aim for approximately 35mils of water for each kilogram of body weight daily.  Make sure they carry a water bottle to school or while playing sports so they remember to drink. 

Your child needs to drink more water when exercising – a good guideline is one litre for every hour of exercise.  Just because your child might not notice the effects of not drinking water doesn’t mean it isn’t important – many children don’t drink enough water.

Clean Water

Filtered water is recommended because tap water contains a number of potentially harmful contaminants including environmental toxins. 

Pure Water

If you prefer flavoured water, you can add ice, mint, bitters, fresh lemon or lime.  Getting into the routine of drinking a glass of water with the juice of ½ squeezed lemon in the morning is an excellent cleanser and digestive toner.

Flavourings

Aim to substitute soft drinks, fruit juice, cordial and other sweetened drinks with water or any of the flavoured alternatives above.  A healthy replacement for soft drinks is 4 parts sparkling mineral water to 1 part fresh fruit juice.

Soft Drinks

Caffeinated beverages such as coffee and tea should be limited to a few cups daily, or as your practitioner advises.  Herbal teas are an excellent alternative.

Caffeine
