Stay Hydrated

In summer, children spend more hours playing outdoors using more energy and sweating more. Be sure to give them all the water they need to stay hydrated. Pay special attention to small children who don't always ask for water when they need it. If you are at home, prepare a refreshing smoothie with fresh fruit like this Peach Malt.
