Drinking water for children: why is it special?

Drinking water for children: why is it special?

We all know that the children's body has its own features, because of which the kid's nutrition should differ from the adult diet. The same is true for water, both in terms of quality and quantity. Vodoliy knows what the ideal water for children should be!

How much water does a child need?

While a new-born baby consumes the mother's milk, they do not need water - the baby already gets enough liquid. But at the age of 1-3 years, when the children's diet is already completely (or almost) composed of solid food, good digestion requires a large amount of water, at least 50 ml per 1 kg of body weight.

3-4 years-old children become especially active. They run a lot, play, and master new motor skills. At the same time, body temperature naturally rises, and water is required to normalize it. Also, in the children's body, all metabolic processes are faster. Thus, during physical activity, kids sweat much more than average adults. Consequently, fluid losses must be replenished regularly.

The liquid is also needed for all processes associated with growth, since it is part of all tissues: skin, muscles, internal organs, tendons, etc. So, for school children, the daily need for liquid can be up to 2.5 liters or even more. The more active and bigger the child, the more water they need.

What should children's drinking water be?

Since children sweat a lot, they lose not only fluid but also a large number of trace elements necessary for normal development and well-being. Thus, the water they consume must contain these substances. However, the acidity of kids` digestive tract is much lower than in adults. Too many mineral-full waters can reduce it even more. Alkaline water can cause nausea, vomiting, constipation, or diarrhoea. And if used for a long time, it can lead to serious digestive problems.

Conclusion: the number of trace elements in the water must be carefully counted in order to provide kids with the necessary substances and not harm their sensitive bodies. The best option is purified artesian water, which goes through a multi-stage filtration process and has an ideal ratio of trace elements, such as:

  • potassium;
  • magnesium;
  • phosphorus;
  • calcium;
  • sodium, etc.
