Five Fruity Water Ideas
Children aged 4-8 need around 1.2 litres of water a day (that's around 5 full glasses), while children aged 9 and up will need 1.5 litres (around 6 glasses).
To help make water more exciting, why not try adding fresh slices of fruit over squash and other drinks. Fresh fruit will only contain natural sugars and children a boost of vitamins. Here's some we would recommend to help give your child's water some flavour.
1. Orange slices
2. Apple slices
4. Cucumber slices and fresh mint
5. Lime and lemon slices
It's important for all children to keep active.
In school we offer regular PE lessons, our Daily Mile challenge and active playtimes, as well as a number of school clubs.
But it is also important to keep active at home, as well as over the school holidays.
