Is Your Child Drinking Enough Water?

Getting your children to drink enough water can seem like a daunting task. Between activities, school, and play it can be hard to monitor the amount of water that is being consumed throughout the day.

Drinking enough water can be hard enough for adults, let alone children, which is why HydroJug has made it our goal to make drinking water easy and convenient for everyone. We are so excited to announce our newest range of products, the Mini HydroJug and Sleeve. This new HydroJug size fills the gap we've been missing. Bottles that are the perfect size for children and for the adults who have been craving something smaller than a half gallon.

Our Mini Sleeves will be releasing this Saturday May 7, at 9 am pst. They are made to fit our newest 32 oz Mini Jug and the vibrant colors and patterns might just be the perfect thing to help make drinking water for you and your child exciting and fun.

Water is extremely important for the development of your children. It plays a factor in almost all aspects of their health! According to Dr. Janine Rethy, Chief of Community Pediatrics at MedStar Georgetown University Hospital, water and milk are the two most important drinks you can give to your children because both are essential for their development. Water is good for joints, weight regulation, and blood circulation. 

You may be wondering, how much water should my child be drinking each day? Well, the amount will vary depending on a few factors: age, activity level, and the weather. A good rule of thumb is to have them drink about 8 oz of water for every year old they are. However, this amount should max out at 64 oz to avoid over-hydration.


There are a few signs and symptoms that you can look for to see if your child is properly hydrated. If your child is exhibiting any of the following symptoms it could mean they are dehydrated.

  • Overly sleepy
  • Dry lips or sticky mouth
  • Dark urine
  • Irritable
  • Flushed skin
  • Lightheadedness
  • Headache
  • Feeling excessively hot or cold

Your children may not always want to drink water. Most of us (adults and children alike) might prefer the taste of juice or soda instead, but we have listed some ideas that will not only help your child drink more water, but that will make the experience more fun for them. 


Buy a fun water bottle such as the Mini HydroJug.

Giving your child their own special bottle to drink out of will make drinking water a lot more fun for them. We love the Mini Jug because it comes in fun colors and has a built in straw to make it easy to drink from. It is also the perfect size for your child to bring along to school or activities! Having a fun water bottle makes the act of drinking water more exciting.

Always have water available for them.

There is a theory that if you always have water around, you will be more likely to drink more water. This holds true for kids as well. Sending them to school or practice with a full water bottle will ensure that they have water with them throughout the day. We love the Mini Sleeve because it comes in vibrant colors and patterns that they are going to love to show off, and it makes carrying their Mini Jug with them at school easy and fun!

Try adding fruit or flavoring to their water. 

Your children may find the added taste of fruit more appealing than just plain water. Infusing the water or adding frozen fruit instead of ice will enhance the flavor of your child’s water and will make it taste sweeter! There are also many types of flavoring you can add to encourage them to drink more. 


Lead by example.

Children learn a lot by observing their parents. If you show them that you are drinking water, they will see that they should be drinking water too. This will not only help your child drink more water, but it will hold you accountable to drinking more water as well.


Try to incorporate some of these ideas into your child’s routine and don’t be afraid to have fun with it! Make sure to try out our new Mini Jug and Mini Sleeve. We really love this product and our hope is that it will help both children and adults drink more water.
