Back to School with Fontis Water

Back to school time! Some school systems are already in session, while others are enjoying a few more days of summer. However, no matter when your start day is, learning in 2020 looks like nothing we have ever seen before. Some will be packing lunches, while others will be opening up the fridge to see what mom and dad have on hand.

Water is Important

No matter where lunch may be, it is just as important to drink your water and choosing Fontis Water is not only easy, it’s also a wise choice. ¬†“Water supplies your child with everything he needs to keep his body hydrated and to replace fluids lost through sweating and eliminating waste. According to the Alliance for a Healthier Generation, water is one of the best drinks to give your child or pack in their lunchbox. It’s calorie-free and helps energize your child for the afternoon ahead. Freeze a reusable bottle of water and use it to keep your child’s lunch cold and fresh until it is time to eat.

Just as healthy drinks boost the nutritional value of your child’s lunch, certain drinks can decrease how nutritious the meal is. It is important that you do not drink fruit-flavored juice pouches. “They are primarily made from water and sugar and don’t supply the same concentration of nutrients that 100 percent fruit juice does. Skip energy drinks and soda because they contain huge amounts of sugar. They also contain caffeine, which isn’t good for your child. According to the Harvard School of Public Health, your child is at an increased risk for weight gain and type 2 diabetes if he regularly consumes these beverages.”*
