[Hydration, essential for the body]
Water is the most important nutrient, constituting 60% of our body. It forms every cell and tissue in our body and is essential for eliminating waste. Symptoms that may occur when there is a lack of hydration include thirst, fatigue, and headaches, as well as decreased concentration and dizziness.
The recommended daily amount of water for men is about 2,000ml, and for adult women, it is about 1,500ml. Pregnant women should consume approximately 2,500ml of water per day, while toddlers should consume 100ml of water per kilogram of body weight.
[Hydration for pregnant women and toddlers]
The body's water content decreases gradually as we grow older, starting from around 80% during infancy and reaching approximately 60% in adulthood and 50% in old age. Therefore, the impact of hydration on health is even greater for pregnant women and toddlers. According to the journal Nutrients, the following daily water intake is recommended:
- Up to 12 months of age: approximately 0.7L
- 1 to 2 years: 1.3L
- 4 to 8 years: 1.7L
[Water consumption at home]
Drinking water that lacks minerals can lead to deficiencies in essential minerals such as calcium, potassium, and zinc. It can also cause growth delays in fetuses and toddlers. Therefore, it is crucial to not only consider the amount of water consumed but also ensure that it contains an adequate amount of minerals.
