It's All About Drinking Water- Kids and Parents

Benefits of Drinking Water


-Keeps active toddlers and preschoolers hydrated

-Reduces acid in the mouth that can cause cavities

-Helps growing toddlers and preschoolers maintain a healthy weight


BEST PRACTICE WATER AVAILABLE AT ALL TIMES


Have water visible and available inside and outside the Pre School for the kids and their parents. It is a tradition in Indian culture to serve water to the guests. In the morning when the parents come to drop the kids, they are in a hurry so it is not mandatory. But in the evening, parents feel nice to get a glass of water when they come to pick the kids. They are bit relaxed.


Tips to Make Water Easily Available-


-Fill child-size water pitchers and let kids serve themselves.

-Use a shower caddy to carry water and cups outside. Invest in a small portable water cooler for outside use.

-Have small cups available. Avoid serving toddlers water in “sippy” cups or baby bottles.

-Many kids do not have a habit to drink water on their own, for them it becomes a necessity for the care provider to give them at regular intervals.


Tips to Make Drinking Water Fun


-Try adding fruit slices or berries to water for extra taste. This makes the water look attractive and adds a slight taste.

-Discuss with your teachers / friends and plan activities about water.

-Select a child to be the “water helper” for the day.


These were a few tried and tested views which will help kids to drink appropriate amount of water throughout the day.
