National Healthy Week

Today’s focus is Staying Hydrated.

The fourth day of Healthy Eating Week and Food Technology lessons were based around hydration. Drinking plenty of fluids is vital to staying healthy, especially during one of the hottest weeks of the year so far, so today was all about staying cool and hydrated.

Classes continued exploring smoothies and had some frozen homemade sorbet.


Here are some tips to make sure your children stay hydrated:

  • pack a water bottle for school and when you go out;

  • encourage your child to drink water before, after and during physical activity;

  • always offer water with meals and snacks;

  • encourage your child to drink water, even if they don’t like it;

  • try a frozen water bottle in summer.



Tips for children who don’t like water:

  • add slices of fruits such as lemon, strawberries or orange to water;

  • let your child choose their own drink bottle or serve water in colourful glasses or jugs;

  • drink water with your child.
