Would it shock you to learn that over 50% of the population is chronically dehydrated?

Some classic signs of dehydration to look for are as follows:

  • Urine is a noticeable yellow colour
  • Feeling of nausea when consuming water
  • Constipation
  • Dry mouth
  • Constant feeling of hunger

Dehydration puts unnecessary stress on your child’s body and alters what they are able to absorb.

Adequately hydration is accomplished through consuming clean, pure water. What does “clean, pure water” mean? Click here 

Are you ready for my super scientific and geeky protocol on how to ensure your child’s hydrate? Here is goes…

? If their urine is very pale yellow or clear – job well done, they’re hydrated.

? If it’s yellow, time to ramp up the water intake.

Okay, maybe my protocol isn’t going to win a Noble Prize but it is so simple that you can teach it to your children and they can monitor their own hydration needs…and that’s a double win because you don’t need another task on your plate, right?!?!

If getting the pale yellow or clear urine is a struggle, try adding in many hydrating foods for a helping hand.

  • Celery
  • Apples
  • Cucumber
  • Radish
  • Green Peppers
  • Tomatoes
  • Watermelon
