Staying hydrated is a challenge for everyone, especially children. They aren't always in tune with what being thirsty means for their health. Being dehydrated can bring on undesirable symptoms, and if we are not careful, dehydration can be deadly.

Being thirsty is normal, however, the way we quench our thirst is a different matter. Today's commercial market offers a myriad of choices when it comes to beverages. Marketers know how to catch the attention of your children with bright flashy colors, and fun commercials to entice them. As a parent do you cave into the marketing traps and purchase less than healthy options for your children to drink?

Here is a fun activity you can do with your child that will lay the groundwork for an important discussion about good, better, and best beverage options. Have fun with this worksheet! Your child may need help filling in the answers at the bottom, and while doing so, you may surprised - EVEN SHOCKED - to realize how much sugar content some of our beverage choices really have.

semi-annual cleaning!
