The BWCA has launched a FREE hydration fact sheet called Why Water Matters for Children, reminding schools of the benefits offered by water coolers.
The message is ‘think drink to help you think’. Being well-hydrated helps children achieve their optimum performance both mentally and physically and water is one of the healthiest means of achieving good hydration levels.
The BWCA is the leading Association representing those who supply and distribute water coolers and related products and services. They set standards of hygiene and safety for their Members through mandatory training and audits.
Why Water Matters for Children is one of a collection of six new published hydration guides. It points out the health benefits to children of drinking both milk and water, advising that sugary drinks such as juices are fine as an occasional treat but reminding schools that these should never be the main source of hydration.
The fact sheet also includes a Healthy Hydration Chart so that children can be encouraged to judge, from the colour of their urine, whether they are well-hydrated.
The fact sheet gives advice on choosing the correct coolers for particular needs and locations.
It outlines the factors to take into account when selecting a mains-fed or bottled water cooler for your particular requirements.
It is important to have a guarantee of best practice when choosing a water cooler supplier. Ensure you select a BWCA Member.
