Only 2 types of drink are strongly recommended for children by health professionals; those are water and milk. For school age children, water is ideal as it is a great way to hydrate, is calorie-free and tooth kind. Knowing when you are thirsty doesn't come naturally; children have to learn this behaviour. Children's higher total body water content and higher respiratory and metabolic rate makes them more vulnerble to the risk of dehydration compared with adults. So children need to be 'taught' to drink frequently and healthily for optimum performance.
