Tips for Hydration

Hotter days are ahead and keeping hydrated is important, especially when playing outside or at the beach.  Symptoms of dehydration are crankiness, dizziness and drowsiness, peeing less often (fewer wet diapers for infants), a dry or sticky mouth or even lack of tears.  

Stay ahead of dehydration by providing enticing drinks such as fruit infused water (check out this jug that keeps the soggy fruit separate from the water), juicy fruits such as melons, oranges and berries, fizzy water (aka: seltzer), ice popsicles (simply freeze water in popsicle molds) and, don’t forget, veggies are hydrating too!

Snack Idea: “Nice-cream”

Frozen bananas can be blended into a creamy, dairy-free treat.  

Blend 1 frozen banana with:

  • 1-2 tbsp cocoa powder & 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1-2 tbsp peanut butter & 2-3 frozen strawberries (or sub 1-2 tbsp strawberry jam)
  • 1-2 tbsp desiccated (dried) coconut & 3-4 chunks frozen pineapple
  • 2-3 tbsp Nutella

Let your imagination go….and let me know if you tried any new combinations!
