National Nutrition and Hydration Week

This National Nutrition and Hydration Week (12-18 March) we want to remind you to keep hydrated. It’s important to instil good drinking habits into young people. At the same time, it’s crucial to keep hydrated as you get older.

If you have children at school, remember to top up their water bottles so that they last throughout the day. Your school will make sure that children drink water with their lunch.

Hydration is not just about how much fluid you drink. Breakfast is important to assist with concentration and memory. Breakfast should be 20-25% of your daily food intake.

Follow us on Facebook for more tips on how to stay hydrated.
