Brita hydration challenge follow up

wpid-wp-1442339105493.jpgWhen the lad was provided with a Brita Fill and Go water bottle last week, resplendent with some stickers to make it easier to see how much he was drinking it was eye opening to all of us.

We know the boy doesn’t drink enough but how little he actually drank has been very revealing. We now know that he should be drinking well over twice what he actually is- the sticker on the side of the Fill and Go basically suggests he should drink a whole bottle in the morning and one again in the afternoon while at school. He’s barely drinking one at the moment, even on the days when he plays football after school.


  • Almost three quarters of parents (73%) do not know how much their children drink whilst at school; and
  • Two thirds (66%) do not know the recommended daily intake of fluid for children

I can believe this, because it was shocking to see how short the boy came to drinking what he was supposed to!
