Summer Slurpin'
During the summer months it is important to drink extra water and fluids to prevent dehydration. The heat is on. Sip and slurp through the day to stay hydrated. Muscles and cells need water to stay healthy. The body is about 60% water. Dehydration can contribute to heat stroke or other heat related problems. During the summer months it is important to drink extra water and fluids to prevent dehydration. Kids and adults need to pay attention to fluids especially in the summer.

Hydrate first with water and drink other fluids during the day. Some of these fluids include milk, chocolate milk, 100% orange juice and a sports drink. Drink morning, noon, and night to keep fluids in your body. Staying out in the hot sun increases the need for water. Drink water every 15 minutes when playing at a park or swimming in a pool.

If it is boring to drink water all the time, here are some foods to eat that are filled with water. Watermelon, oranges, or fruit cups contain extra water and are a great choice for a summer fruit. Snack choices that contain extra fluid are popsicles, Italian ice, and jello. Sip and slurp this summer to stay hydrated.
