You need it!

  • Even before you feel thirsty, when you are exercising and when you are sick, it's important to drink water.
  • You are made up of 60% water
  • Some foods that are high in water are lettuce, salsa, and juices
  • Over hydration is possible, but Ms. Baker told us not to worry about it
  • Dehydration is much more common and your age, activity level, and body size determines how much water you should drink.
