Why children should drink plenty of water

In our article, we explain why and how much water is important for children. You can also find out how best to motivate children to drink a lot.

Smart people drink smart - with enough water! Our body consists of almost 65% water - in children and adolescents it is even up to 75%. Adequate fluid intake ensures that your brain can work optimally. Not only does it help with concentration and alertness, it also helps to boost memory and creativity. Dehydration, on the other hand, can lead to fatigue, headaches and impaired cognitive function.


Shortly before the start of school, it's time again to ensure that all pupils and students have enough energy and stamina to get through the school day, so it's important to drink enough water to maintain concentration and performance. We have the best school companions for this with our robust and sustainable drinking bottles that are completely free from BPA or other harmful substances. A healthy diet and sufficient fluid intake are very important in everyday school life. Together with environmentally friendly, reusable products, this results in healthy and sustainable behaviour, which can never be learnt early enough. Our drinking bottles reduce disposable waste and help pupils to drink healthily in an attractive way. Water instead of sugary drinks is essential here. The water bottles can be personalised and printed with a playful motif as well as a name field where the children can write their own names. Alternatively, we can also have individual names printed directly using digital printing. A great project in which we are very happy to be involved. Get to know our range of bottles.

How much should children and adults actually drink?

Water requirements vary depending on age and activity level. The German Nutrition Society recommends the following daily amounts to drink depending on the age group:

up to 3-year-olds about 820 ml

4 to 6-year-olds approx. 940 ml

7- to 9-year-olds approx. 970 ml

10- to 12-year-olds approx. 1.170 ml

13- to 14-year-olds approx. 1.330 ml

15 to 19-year-olds around 1.530 ml

20 to 24-year-olds approx. 1.470 ml

25 to 50-year-olds about 1.410 ml

51- to 64-year-olds approx. 1.230 ml

65-year-olds and older approx. 1.310 ml

Pregnant women approx. 1470 ml Breastfeeding women approx. 1710 ml

These are only recommendations and it should be noted that the more physical or mental activity we do and the hotter the temperatures, the more water we need. In most cases, this means that we need even more water, often up to 2.5 litres a day.

We at aboutwater think so: With the right water bottle, it is much easier to drink enough water in a healthy way. The idea of promoting water drinking in everyday school and university life can prove to be extremely effective. Customised water bottles, which can even be personalised with the school logo, university logo, motifs or slogans, help students stay hydrated and motivated. Reusable bottles made from safe, non-toxic materials, such as Tritan™, can be easily carried throughout the day. Not only does this have the benefit of improved hydration, but it also prevents the purchase of single-use plastic bottles, helping to reduce waste.
