Q. Is running a good exercise to maintain my fitness during my pregnancy?
With temperatures rising, it’s a great time for parents to head outdoors and get active with the family. but as the kids play, mommies and daddies tend to focus on their children’s needs, neglecting their own bodies as a result. So we thought it would be practical to post some summer hydration tips for kids (and parents too!)
“Only 25%* of parents hydrate properly,” says Dara Duff-Bergeron, mom and personal trainer. “While juggling carpool, volunteering in the classroom and taking care of a sick child, parents often forget to drink fluids and replenish lost vitamins and nutrients.”
Q. I try to drink water throughout the day but don’t really consume that much. Now that I’m pregnant, do I really need to force myself even when I’m not thirsty?
