HPRC Under Hydration Study Receives National Media Coverage

Our study, which found that more than half of all children and adolescents in the United States are not adequately hydrated at any given time, has been featured in national media coverage.

Lead author and HPRC Researcher Dr. Erica Kenney commented on the study’s results:

“It was astounding to me, that so many children said they drink no water at all. And even among the kids who were drinking water — they weren’t drinking very much of it.” (via NPR)

As well as the importance of providing access to, and promoting drinking water:

“It’s all about access. Just giving children a way to actually get water can be a good thing and promote consumption.” (via CBS News)
