Hydration & Health Conference

Institute of Child Health. London, UK. Thursday 11 November 2010

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.

This one-day conference included presentations from expert speakers, as well as an opportunity to hear invited original communications from PhD students and academic researchers presenting the latest research on hydration and health.
