Kickstart Your Child’s New School Term the Right Way – with Hydration!

Kickstart Your Child’s New School Term the Right Way – with Hydration!

ZeroWater’s mission this September is that your children go back to school the right way – hydrated!

Hydration improves sleep, mood, focus and productivity and is therefore one of the most important back to school essentials. So when you’re out shopping for your little ones back to school items, grab pens, pencils, notebooks as well as a re-usable water bottle and a water filter to ensure your child is hydrated with the purest tasting water possible.

If your children struggle to focus, are demotivated or tired during school, hydration is a key way to give them a boost and ensure they get the most out of their school day!

If you find it hard to get your children to drink enough water at home or at school, ZeroWater is here to give you a helping hand!

Why is Hydration Crucial for Children?

Why is Hydration Crucial for Children?

Water is essential to transport nutrients to cells, regulate body temperature, digest food, lubricate our joints, and to flush out waste and toxins.

Therefore,  hydration is extremely important to ensure that your body and mind is in good working order. In order to have the best, most productive school day possible, your children need to be hydrated.

According to the Natural Hydration Council, children are at a greater risk of dehydration than adults as they have higher water requirements in relation to their body weight. Unlike adults, children usually have to ask for a drink, so rely on you as their parents/caregivers to keep them hydrated. Dehydration is caused by not drinking enough water to replace what we lose throughout the day, and tiredness is one of the first signs of dehydration.

Tiredness as a result of dehydration will impair your child’s attention span, memory and motor skills, all of which will negatively impact upon their academic progress at school. Even mild dehydration (1-3% of body weight) can impair many aspects of your child’s brain function.

Not to worry, the simple act of drinking a bottle of water will boost your child’s productivity and help them to concentrate and feel revitalised throughout the school day.

As a parent/caregiver you play an important role in helping your child to develop healthy hydration habits. Encourage your child to make the most of drinking stations at school and to drink from their water bottle throughout the day to keep them mentally focussed in class, and educate them on the importance of hydration.

At ZeroWater we have created the most advanced and affordable water filters on the market! All to make sure that your family is as hydrated as possible for this new school term!

Our 5 stage filter system is guaranteed to outperform any other simplistic 2 stage filter on the market such as Brita filters.

2 stage filters only contain Activated Carbon and Ion Exchange Resin, while our filters contain 3 other stages (a Coarse Filter Screen, a Foam Distributor and a Ultra-fine screen & non-woven membrane layers). This means that these 2 stage filters only remove around half of all the dissolved solids in your water and therefore the taste will not be as pure as what ZeroWater filters can provide. You can read our previous article for a detailed explanation on how our Premium 5 Stage Ion Exchange water filters work!

When tested in accordance with the NSF’s protocol based on a 40 gallon filtration (double the rated usage), ZeroWater reduces 97% of Lead and 99.9% of Chromium from tap water. They are also third party tested to reduce 96% of Mercury, 93% of Arsenic and 99% of Copper, among many other contaminants!

ZeroWater wants to ensure that your children are effectively hydrated so that they can make the most of each and every school day!
