Hydrating drinks for kids – easy and delicious!

Childhood is a time when habits such as staying well hydrated should be consolidated. Hydration is essential to prevent the signs of thirst from appearing, especially in the spring-summer season, or in hot environments. So it’s important to have a couple of hydrating drinks for children. Get them ready now!

Orange-lemon drink

This hydrating drink tastes great and should ideally be kept at a lukewarm temperature of around 8˚C to aid absorption. To do this pour in ¼ cup of hot water and 1/3 teaspoon of salt and mix until dissolved. Wait for the water to cool slightly and add 1/4 cup orange juice, 2 tablespoons lemon juice, 3 teaspoons honey and 3 ½ cups cold water. Stir together and place in the refrigerator until lukewarm.

Lemon-ginger drink

This drink is a good way to hydrate while enjoying the taste. It is also packed with vitamins and minerals that contribute to good health. Pour 10 g of grated fresh ginger, 150 ml of coconut water or mineral water and 60 ml of lemon juice into a bowl. Mix until well blended. Strain and add to a jug along with 300 ml of coconut water, a pinch of salt and 2 teaspoons of honey. Blend and place in the fridge until lukewarm.

Pineapple-coconut drink

This drink is excellent for optimal hydration after exercise to restore fluid and electrolyte loss. Simply pour 1 cup pineapple juice, 1 cup hot water, 1 cup coconut water and 1/8 teaspoon salt into a pitcher. Blend until smooth. Place in the refrigerator until lukewarm.

These are great hydrating drinks, so kids won’t say no to them. So start preparing them and remember that water should also be present in their diet for the body to function well.
