What is nutrition and hydration week?
Nutrition & Hydration Week celebrates the progress we’ve made with nutrition and hydration locally and around the world. “Its purpose is to bring people together to create energy, focus and fun in order to highlight and educate people on the value of food and drink in maintaining health and well-being in health and social care.” The week has been celebrated since 2021 and makes great strides in showing how important drinking and staying hydrated is to keep our body working well and feeling great.
When is nutrition and hydration week?
14 to 20 June 2021
The highlight? A Global Tea Party :)
One simple way to hydrate more is to enjoy tea either hot or cold with your favourite tea leaf. On Wednesday June 16th, the community encourages everyone to hold a tea party wherever they are and share the fun on social media. By sharing your own hydration tips, you remind your followers of how important water and hydration is to our bodies and possibly influence a very good thing.
