Giving kids a high quality of water will keep them healthy and hydrated.

Water is one of the most natural healthy beverages that children can drink. Providing children with easy to clean drinking water is as important as proving quality food during the day.

In most schools, the main provision for drinking water is from cold water taps in school toilets. The hygiene standards at school toilets could pose risks of contamination to children using them. A lot of school toilets are not well maintained and clean, therefore they are not an ideal type of environment for drinking water.

Keeping children hydrated is vital for learning but teachers do not encourage children enough to drink water on a regular basis. Adequate hydration plays an important role in maintaining normal attention span and performance.

Investing in the indoor fountain or outdoor fountain will help provide chilled filtered water to schools, making it easier for children to access water throughout the day even during the hottest summer of the year.

Children are at greater risk of dehydration than adults due to their lower body weight and smaller reserve of body fluids. Equally, whilst adults often have easy access to a supply of water, children tend to rely on their caregivers to provide drinks and often don’t recognize the early stages of thirst.

As we approach summer, it is important to keep children topped up with fluid during the day. At Drinking Water Fountains ZA, we offer a wide range of indoor and outdoor drinking water fountains suitable for schools.
