Around 75 per- cent of dietary water comes from beverages and the remaining 25 percent comes from moisture in foods. Yet only one in four U.S. children are getting the amount they need. Even mild dehydration can lead to health problems and trouble concentrating. For many par- ents, however, which drinks to offer their kids--and how to get their kids to drink them--can sometimes be a dilemma. Here are a few tips to help keep kids happily hydrated: Chill out--The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says make water more appealing by keeping it cold in the fridge. Popsicle me--Make your own wholesome treats. Take fimit juice and pour into Popsicle molds. Pop in the freezer and in an hour or two you'll have a healthful des- sert or a mid-afternoon snack. Skip the caffeine-- Soda may be a liquid but it's actually dehydrating. A com- mon ingredient in sof~ drinks is caffeine, which is a diuret- ic, causing a loss of fluids. Fruit saves the day--- Fruit is a great way to help meet hydration needs, espe- cially water-dense straw- berries, grapefruit, canta- loupe, peaches, pineapple and, naturally, watermelon. Plan ~ water in your car. Carry water or another drink wherever you go and offer it to your kids Photos submitted.

All too often, a major hurdle in getting kids to drink water is taste. A qmck and easy way to add flavor is to infuse water with fruit. Slice fruit into a decanter of water and in no time you~l have a tasty drink. Pick one fruit or exper- iment with a hybrid.
