Remember to Hydrate During the Holidays!
What's on your holiday dinner shopping list? Did you remember water?
It's so easy for busy families to get caught up in the hub bub of the holiday season - whether it's traveling, shopping or class partying, and that often means healthy hydration goes out the window. Did you know 54% of all school-aged children are inadequately hydrated. This shockingly high number alarmed Nestle® Pure Life®, and they’re creating efforts to reduce it. Nestlé® Pure Life® has committed to provide nearly one million 8 ounce servings of water to kids this school year through After-School All-Stars. Additionally, they’re helping consumers keep their own families hydrated with information and tips on PureLifeRippleEffect.com.
Check out these 3 easy ways for families to remember to stay hydrated this holiday season:
- Opt for water at holiday celebrations: Eating out with the grandparents? Attending the school holiday carnival? The Nestlé®Pure Life® Survey found that kids are most likely to choose a drink other than water at restaurants (54% soda) and celebrations (58% soda). Instill a water-first habit in your kids, which simply means, before juices, sport drinks, and soda, they drink a full serving (or 2!) of water.
- Add festive flair to your water bottles: Purchase inexpensive holiday straws and cup holders while checking off your holiday gift list and stash them around the house for kids to add to their favorite bottle or cup of water. Throw a couple in as stocking stuffers too!
- Set reminders: The Nestlé®Pure Life® Survey revealed that a startling 33% of kids say they find it hard to remember to drink water without reminders while less than half (48%) of moms regularly remind their child to drink water. The chaos of the holiday season can make remembering to drink water regularly even harder! Easy reminders for kids and moms include drinking a glass of water each time you use the restroom, drinking a glass of water when you wake up in the morning and then with each meal too.
