Water is essential for life and maintaining optimum levels of hydration for health is important for all age groups. However there are lots of mixed messages about how much, and what to drink, which can be confusing for consumers.

Is it true that tea and coffee do not count towards my fluid intake?
What is the best way to stay hydrated during exercise?
How much fluid do children and older people need?

The answers to these questions and more were discussed at the British Nutrition Foundation conference on hydration and health in central London on 11 November 2010.
