ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI)- We know that hydrating, especially during the summer months is very important. If you're not one to chug water, there is a way to get your hydration on with food.
Katie Lambert, Dietician at Barnes-Jewish Hospital explains.
The Institute of Medicine recommends that general fluid intake for men be 15+ cups a day, women 11+ cups a day, children aged 9 to 13 7 to 8 cups of fluid per day, and teenagers aged 14 to 18 8 and 11 cups. About 80% of our water intake comes from what we drink, while the other 20% comes from what we eat.
