Active children should take more milk. As a measure against dehydration it is more effective than water, is the conclusion of scientists from McMaster University.
Children often get dewatered when running, playing or working out. It’s important they should get enough liquid. Milk was found to be the best drink for that of all other drinks including water, being a source of high-quality protein, carbohydrates, calcium, and electrolytes.
Besides, milk restores sodium, that goes away with sweat, and help the body retain its liquids better. Milk contains protein that is necessary for developing muscles and gaining height, which no other drink can provide.
So it is not for nothing that people say: strength is like milk – it is inexhaustible.
