Tummyfish – Best App To Entice Kids To Drink More Water
Tummyfish – The Must Have Mobile App For Parents And Kids Alike
With the aim of increasing the awareness of the importance of water intake especially for kids between the ages of 4 to 12, United For Healthier Kids (U4HK-ME) by Nestlé Middle East recently launched today’s must have mobile app for kids and parents alike, the Tummyfish app.
This is part of the initiative that helps parents in raising healthier and happier kids, which is identifying behaviors. And they’ve come up with these four: more water, more fruits & vegetables, more managed portions and more movement behaviors.
Under the more water behavior, the Tummyfish app, was launched on Saturday at Wild Wadi Waterpark in Jumeirah. The colorful and wonderfully created app, with interface that truly attracts kids, can be downloaded from Apple App Store or Google Play, for free.
A book was also launched alongside Tummyfish app. Reading it and using the app daily will encourage to increase the water drinking habits of your kids.
Hydration is particularly important for children as they need more water during the day for many reasons among which are: their fast growth rate, higher water percentage of their body, and being generally more active than adults – Dr Carla Habib Mourad, Clinical and Community Nutritionist and the Nutritional Behaviour Change expert for U4HK
One indicator to know your kids’ hydration status, is the color of their urine. The clearer the urine, the better. And for parents, better to always keep in mind these recommended daily water consumption:
- 1,600 ml (6-7 cups) for 4 to 8 year olds
- 1,900 ml and 2,100 ml(8-9 cups) for 9 to 13 year olds respectively
