IMPORTANCE OF WATER: More than two thirds of children have a hydration deficit when they go to school in the morning.
On October 7, 2012 the Nestlé Nutrition Institute hosted a Satellite Symposium at the Food and Nutrition Conference and Expo (FNCE) in Philadelphia, USA.
Three speakers addressed the topic of hydration in children:
- Prof. Gérard Friedlander : “Hydration Status of Children in the US and Europe”
- Prof. Adam Drewnowski: “Are the DRIs for Water Being met?”
- Maureen Pisanick: “Hydration Habits for Healthy Kids”
The conference highlighted the importance of maintaining good hydration status in children on a daily basis to ensure optimal body function.
