Hydration & fruit juice…

So I feel we’re all conscious of how essential it’s to maintain our our bodies hydrated and the identical goes for youngsters.  Sadly there may be quite a lot of emphasis on flavoured drinks in relation to kids and the advertising and marketing man has led us up the backyard path by implying that these conveniently packaged fruit juices (insert a model of your selection) are useful to well being as a result of they include ‘actual fruit’.  Now I’m not going to get into the nitty gritty about all of this however protected to say water is by far the best choice for hydration. 

 

Even recent juices shouldn’t be consumed usually in giant quantities (it’s nonetheless sugar although it’s from a fruit!). However if you’re struggling to get your kiddies to sip on water you can all the time attempt including slices of orange, lemon, lime, cucumber or mint to the bottle and even mixing some recent juice with water and regularly lowering the energy over the weeks. You may also attempt glowing water for some additional curiosity. And I might advise avoiding synthetic sweeteners just like the plague each for adults and kids – learn the labels and also you’ll see how usually they’re used within the ‘wholesome’ choices.
