Nature dictates that every living thing, from plants to animals to humans, needs water. Unfortunately some of us are more apt to ensure that we give our animals water to drink and water our plants before we drink this life-giving and life-sustaining liquid ourselves.
Many studies have been done to determine the reason for a worldwide tendency to obesity in children, and a big part of this was found to be because children are drinking too many carbonated drinks and not enough water.
A study undertaken in Germany and published in the journal Paediatrics showed us that installing water fountains in schools has a direct impact on childhood obesity rates, and that installing water fountains in schools could help as where there are such water fountains the children as well as the staff drink less sugary drinks and more water.
Children who drink more water also eat less because the water makes them full so they do not fill up on sweets and junk food. The studies also showed that when taught how important water is to the human body, why the body needs water, how much water they should drink, and are given easy access to water, children fairly quickly change any potentially dangerous Drinking Habits and drink less sugary juices and fizzy drinks.
Cultivating Healthy Drinking Habits in your children is vital and is also more easily done if you as parent also have healthy drinking habits. One way of ensuring this is to invest in your and your family’s health by investing in a water cooler that can provide you all with toxin-free, great-tasting, chilled drinking water virtually 24/7.
You can either get a bottled water cooler or a mains water cooler that is directly connected to your municipal water supply; you can even get a water cooler that not only provides you with chilled water but ambient and hot water options too.
