The human body is made up of 60% water. Water is very important to drink as it regulates body temperature, delivers oxygen to the body, helps digestion, and more! However, if you don't drink enough water, you can suffer from headaches, irritability, poor physical health, and more. Erica Kenney, a scientist at Harvard's T.H. Chan School of Public Health, studied a group of 4,000 children from the ages 6 to 19, between the years 2009 and 2012. She noticed that half the children were dehydrated. The United States National Agriculture Library says kids need about 10 to 14 cups of water daily. However, this water can come from other foods such as fruits and vegetables (oranges, cucumbers, melons, ect...). I always try my best to drink enough water throughout the day, however I don't drink enough water on school days.
