child drinking water from glass

Does your child drink enough water?

In recent years, as public health officials have worked to combat childhood obesity, they have encouraged parents to reduce children’s intake of sugary drinks. The American Heart Association says kids should drink no more than 8-ounces of sugar-sweetened drinks per week. That’s less than a single can of soda (12 ounces) or a sports drink (typically 20 ounces) in a given week.

Both parents and kids are heeding the advice to avoid sugary beverages, and as a result, such drinks are falling out of fashion. Yes, kids are drinking less soda, but here’s the important question: are they drinking enough water? Surprisingly, the answer is often no.

Researchers at Harvard University found that many kids, ages six to 19, are insufficiently hydrated. They learned this by analyzing a national volunteer health survey that included urine analysis. When a person’s urine shows a high saline content, it’s an indicator that he or she needs to drink more fluids, including water.

“This doesn’t mean that we’re saying that kids are dropping like flies or that they are very seriously dehydrated and need to go to the hospital,” explains Erica Kenney, the lead researcher in the project, to NPR. “But a lot of kids are going through their days in this state of mild dehydration, and that could be affecting how they feel throughout the day.”

Further, Kenney says she and her colleagues uncovered another astounding statistic: approximately 25 percent of the kids surveyed never drink water. 

There are various factors to consider, but in general, children should drink approximately two to three quarts of water a day. Kids with a high level of activity, like playing soccer on a hot summer day, require even more. recommends giving kids water when they work up a sweat, so “they continue to associate plain water—not sports drinks or soda—with quenching their thirst.” 

The Coway Aquamega 100 provides fresh, clean water for kids and parents alike every day. It’s easy to install at home and reduces drinking water contaminants by up to 99.9 percent. The triple-filter system is a safe, delicious and convenient way to ensure that kids get enough water throughout their day.


1Coway air purifiers have been proven to trap dust, pollen, dander, viruses and bacteria in the air based on KCL (Korea Conformity Laboratories) testing.They have been tested in a 30㎥ size chamber according to the Korea Air Cleaning Association standard (SPS-KACA 002-132:2022 Modified) to measure the 0.01㎛ size of particle removal rate. It was tested on maximum airflow speed in normal room temperature and humidity conditions. The performance may vary in the actual living environment of customers.

3Aerosol test conducted in a Biosafety level 3 laboratory with two Coway air purifier models, Coway Airmega 250 and 400 for removal of SARS-CoV-2 Aerosol by US based MRI Global, a not-for-profit laboratory and partner of US Department of Defense. The test was conducted in a 13.1ft3 chamber. Virus was aerosolized for 15 minutes and the product was turned on high for 2 minutes. Result showed each product effectively removed over 99.98% of the SARS-CoV-2 in 2 minutes. This is a result from a laboratory experiment condition and result may vary in different conditions. This result does not imply it kills SARS-CoV-2 or prevents the transmission of Covid-19. Coway Airmega 250S and 400S are identical to the tested models and has equal performance with an additional mobile connectivity function.

4The concentration of ammonia, acetaldehyde and acetic acid were proven to be removed within 30 minutes by FCG Research Institute, Inc. Human Life Science Lab. It is not a demonstration result in the actual use space. Not all odors and gases may be supported. → Tested with Coway Airmega 150, 160, AP-1512HH, AP-1512HHS, 400, 400S

5The coverage area of the air purifier is based on an area where the air cleaner can make two air changes per hour (ACPH). An air change per hour translates to how many times an air purifier can clean an area, assuming the height of a ceiling to be 8 ft, in one hour. Therefore ** means two air changes per hour means that the cleaner can clean the area once every 30 minutes and * means air changes per hour means that the air purifier can clean the area once every 60 minutes.
