The new school year is here again! And back-to-school shopping is in full swing. When you are out shopping for all school supplies, don’t forget to buy a new WOW CUP too! Because keeping your children hydrated is crucial to help them stay focused and ready to learn and develop new skills!
Are you asking how? Our body is composed of 65% water and the brain itself is about 75% water and the water helps the brain cells to communicate with each other.
It also clears out toxins and carries nutrients to keep it healthy. So, there is no surprise that dehydration slows down our reaction time, and also impact short-term memory. Even mild dehydration, that we can imagine as a body water loss of 1-2% can impact the cognitive abilities and therefore the ability to take new information or concentrate during school classes or exams. The dehydration is more common than you might think, according to the American Health Association. They surveyed over 4000 kids in school age (from 9–19) and found out than more than a half of them weren’t adequately hydrated which may affect their capacity of learning.
It is not only the brain that benefits from drinking enough water. It also regulates body temperature, aids healthy digestion and blood circulation, and keeps joints, bones, and teeth healthy. It also supports the immune system which is very important when your children are surrounded by other kids. So, along with the milk, water is the best and healthiest option while in or out of school.
If you are not quite sure if your children drink enough, here are some signs that they might be dehydrated:
