UW Health's Pediatric Fitness Clinic in Madison, Wisconsin, believes water is the best beverage for many reasons:
- Water helps to keep hunger in check. Many people mistake hunger for thirst.
- Water helps to move oxygen throughout the body and delivers nutrients (energy) where it needs it most.
- Water helps the body to stay at a healthy temperature.
- Water keeps our eyes, nose, mouth and skin moist.
- Water is free. Not only is it free of calories and sugar. It is available at no cost!
