Similar to infants, babies and toddlers have a relatively high demand for liquids and therefore need additional drinks. Young children (1-3 years) should drink about 1 litre a day.
Mineral water, unsweetened teas or diluted high quality fruit or vegetable juices (1 part juice to 2 parts water) are most suitable.
Drinks such as cola or other fizzy drinks contain too much sugar, are too rich in calories and are therefore not recommended. Sweetened or caffeinated drinks should not be given to babies or young children.
