Drink Water


Water is the best thirst quencher! Always drink water instead of other beverages between meals. Tap water is just as healthful as bottled, and it costs less! You can carry water to go in a sports bottle - to school, for outside play and for sports activities. Milk and juice are recommended beverages at meals. Drinking sugary soda pop, fruit and sports drinks should be limited
The benefits of drinking water include: 
  • Quenches your thirst
  • Keeps you from feeling thirsty
  • Helps keep your skin healthy
  • Helps keep your body cool
  • Water is essential for the cells of your body to function

Ideas for water and other treats:

  • Place a lemon or orange wedge in your glass of water for flavoring.
  • Make juice flavored ice cubes. To prepare ice cubes, use regular ice trays or ones with star, heart, bell or other novelty shapes. Fill trays about halfway full with grape juice (about 2 Tablespoons juice for each cube). Freeze for about 2 hours, or until solid. Place juice cubes in a glass and add water.
  • Make frozen grapes. Select a seedless grape bunch and remove the stem. Wash and dry the grapes, place in bowl and put into the freezer until solid.
  • Water you can chew. Tomatoes, watermelon or honey dew melon, green peppers, cucumbers, lettuce, oranges, grapefruit, seedless grapes, sugar-free jello are all made primarily of water. So, cut them up and chew away!
