Hi! This a great, informative article! I've also given my child Econorm, a probiotic powder with her meals to help keep her gut healthy, help with dehydration, help her gain weight and stabilize her metabolism! Mixing it with milk or curd allows my child to swallow it easily too. Probiotics are said to have an overall effect on the body- not only on the stomach and gut but helps elevate mood and laziness too!

Reading this , I noticed that my boy has been drinking very little water lately, somehow when kids grow older, our focus tends to shift from these things to other things.. Through the day I was after him to keep drinking water and by the time the day ended, he was like, mum, I have had enough water!' A very relevant post Anurima, waiting for more..

Thank you everyone. It is indeed difficult to get children to drink water especially when they fall ill. Encouraging them to keep taking sips of water throughout the day will keep them stay hydrated and help fight off kidney and bladder infections.

We have to literally run after kids to have them drink water specially in winters. Before couple of days, my daughter used to return her school's water bottle full without drinking even a single sip from it.... I called her class teacher and request her to keep her reminding to keep on sipping water... Water is definitely required to prevent kids from dehydration and to keep their system clean too. lack of water can lead to Urinary tract infections and many other problems also.
