Summer Hydration Tips for Kids

Skies are clear and the sun is shining, which can only mean one thing: It's time to play outside.

But all that fun doesn't come without risk. Children don't always recognize signs of thirst or take the time to get a drink of water, which puts them at greater risk for dehydration—especially in hot and humid summer conditions. A recent study in the American Journal of Public Health found that nearly 55 percent of participants ages 6 to 19 are inadequately hydrated.

Use these tips to make sure the kiddos stay healthy and hydrated all summer long.
