3 Tips for Keeping the Family Hydrated and Healthy During the School Season:
1. The simplest and most important is to increase water consumption. To achieve this, my children bring their bottles of Water Nestlé® Pure Life® to school, to take at lunchtime, at recess and during their sports activities, we must stay hydrated, drink liquids before, during and after exercise. When it comes to taking them to their activities or when we go for a walk, I always charge with me my little cooler with water bottles, Nestlé® Pure Life®.
To accompany the meals we take water with slices of some fruit or grass as mint, for a long time we do not drink sodas, we try to take as little as we can and we leave them for special occasions, such as when we go to a party.
Water is the most abundant and essential element of the human body, it opens 60% of the total weight in young adults and 50% of the elderly.
2. Wash hands frequently. Sometimes we don't care, but children should be encouraged to wash their hands several times a day; for example, after arriving from school, they will probably come by eating some snack and you don't know when they last washed their hands at school, after hanging around playing with their little friends or greeting other hand-held people. Before and after eating and going to the bathroom, you know the golden rule to avoid bacteria.
3. Eating a Balanced Diet.Try to balance your meals, encourage your children to eat all kinds of vegetables, remember that the more colorful the dish is the healthier; includes soups or broths, add vegetables that contain many liquids such as jicama, tomato, lettuce, cucumber, etc.
Offer them dessert fruits such as watermelon, melon, which also contain large amounts of water. Water makes up 90% of most fruits and vegetables and 50% of meats.
In addition to these tips try to spend time with your family, balance work and home, as they say out there: "Don't live to work, Work to live."
Do you know that water is a very important source of nutrition for the body but the needs of each person are different? We drink water through the drinks and water that comes integrated into our food.
