But why does it matter?
Water helps keep your temperature normal. Besides being an important part of the fluids in your body, water is needed by each cell to work. Your body doesn't get water only from drinking water. Any fluid you drink will contain water, but water and milk are the best choices because water in it's purest state is the healthiest while milk contains calcium which aids in bone health.
What if your kid still doesn't consume 7-11 glasses of water a day?
Different kids have different ways of drinking their fill. As parents, we need to find more ways to get our children to drink the necessary number of glasses of water to ensure they stay hydrated.
My son needs to be constantly reminded about water intake but when reminded, he can drink 3 glasses in one sitting. However, when I don't remind him, he forgets and ends up drinking half a glass only per meal.
So though water is a great source, some kids just can't drink enough of it and this is where Tang comes into play. Tang makes drinking more enjoyable and fun for kids. With over 18 choices available, Tang provides a valuable add on to ensure that your kid stays hydrated and fill the hydration gap.
IMPT NOTE: Tang juice drink is simply an add on to help kids reach 7-11, glasses a day of water. Water still needs to be the main source of hydration.
The #UHAWareYou campaign was launched to encourage parents to check on their kids' state ofhydration and take measures to make sure their child intakes the right amount of fluids available through various ways.
You see, there are kids who will voluntarily dehydrate themselves because they don't want to be bothered while playing. Sometimes, they are just not interested in drinking water. The best solution is to make drinking fluids more fun for them.
A few suggestions I gathered from my readers are:
1. Drink with them. Kids mimic what adults do so when you drink fluids with them, they will be more inclined to do the same.
2. Get your kids to choose their water bottle. Sometimes, a cute water bottle can do the trick.
3. Get them glass or metal straws if they prefer to drink with a straw.
4. Give the juice once a day. A glass of TANG juice drink a day is not a bad way to add fluids to their fluid intake.
So, Uhaw are you today?
