Promoting healthy drinking habits in children

Comment

Indeed, children prefer fizzy drinks to water but not a good idea! Glad to have the consequences of dehydration pointed out.The amount of fluid depending on age, health etc. If dehydration causes cognitive disfunctioning in children, how much more so in the elderly, sick people who have spent some time in hospital, where time often prevents fluid intake promotion. And if 60-65% of body-mass is water, every organ is going to be affected by even this 1-2% loss from evaporation, expiration and excretion of fluids. How dysfunctioned people must be when fluids are withdrawn, to say nothing about the discomfort that MUST be felt
