Stay Hydrated and Healthy This Summer

As temperatures rise, staying hydrated becomes increasingly important 

Especially with summer sports and outdoor activities for kids. Best Water Technology (BWT) underscores the critical need for consistent water intake throughout the day, regardless of whether you’re basking in the sun or relaxing in the shade.

The general guideline is to drink about 2 liters of water daily. However, for those engaging in outdoor activities, yard work, play, or exercise, this amount can increase to up to 3 liters. For toddlers and younger children, approximately 1.5 to 2 liters are recommended to ensure they stay adequately hydrated..

Dr. Mahvash Madni from the American Academy of Pediatrics emphasizes the importance of regular water intake. “Encourage drinking water every half hour to every hour,” advises Dr. Madni, adding that for those who are very active, it’s beneficial to drink a cup of water every 15 to 20 minutes. She also recommends using glass or steel containers instead of plastic to preserve water quality and reduce exposure to potential contaminants.

Staying hydrated also means being vigilant about the signs of dehydration. These include 

  • Dizziness, 

  • Headache, 

  • Thirst.

While sports drinks can be helpful, they are typically only necessary during intense, strenuous activities such as marathon running. For most people, especially during regular play or exercise, water remains the most efficient and healthiest option for hydration.
