Healthy hydration is an important part of a healthy diet and water is a widely-affordable, healthy drink choice. It’s a natural alternative to soft or sugary drinks – important given the rising problems of obesity, diabetes and tooth decay.
The NHS advises people to drink about 1.6-2 litres of fluids a day to avoid dehydration – and if you do this with tap water it will cost you less than £1 a year to stay healthily hydrated.
People over 40 consume most tap water but according to research from the Natural Hydration Council and Netmums (2013), children need to drink more, especially at school.
Nearly 70% of parents said that children are thirsty when they get home from school, and almost half of parents (43%) regularly notice other signs of dehydration in their children, including tiredness and irritability.
Bristol Water meets some of the most stringent quality tests in the world. We hope that by supporting campaigns like Refill Bristol [link to page] and the Tap into Bristol drinking fountain [link to page], we are helping to improve people’s health and habits – one drink at a time.
