Does your GS'er drink a lot of water?

Are they allowed to bring a water bottle to school?

If so, do they?




Mine do drink a lot of water - it's decently warm here most days still! They are allowed water bottles (encouraged to bring them) and they always do!

Brinlee drinks a lot of water, it's the only thing I allow the kids to have between meals and they usually get it with their snack as well. They can take water in their lunch if they want, but I always send milk with Brinlee. They have water fountains they can use at school, like when they come in from recess or go to the restroom. They aren't really allowed to have drinks in the classroom on a regular basis.

Does your GS'er drink a lot of water? Nope, like me he hates water. So I buy Mio (kind of like liquid crystal light) and add a little bit of that to his water bottle and then there's no issue with him getting enough to drink.

Are they allowed to bring a water bottle to school? Yes. Even if they weren't, he has a doctor's note requiring that as well as an open pass to use the bathroom when needed.

If so, do they? Yes. With his constipation issue he has to drink no less than 32 ounces of water per day, preferably 40 or more.

I try to get them to drink as much water as possible, but during the winter months I find they just don't want it. During the summer they can't seem to get enough of it. They aren't allowed water bottles in class, but they always get one in their lunches, and for the most part they drink some of it.

They do drink water, although they prefer it flavoured. They are allowed water bottles in class and they do take them in.

They drink a decent amount of water. Nat can take a water bottle to school but she only takes it here and there.

Yea they both drink a lot of water! It's the only thing I let them drink during the day normally, except for milk etc during meals. They can also each have one or two glasses of juice, I'm okay with that. And in the weekend on friday and saturday night they can drink some lemonade.
They bring water to school, for breaks, but Dutch kids don't lunch at school so they just drink milk at home
