What does bright yellow wee mean?

My 2yo ds has quite bright yellow wee. I am just starting potty training and noticed this for the first time in a white potty. I wouldn't have noticed otherwise as would have been in a nappy.

It looked more yellow than mine would normally iykwim but I seem to think it should only be pale yellow.

Not drinking enough?

Darker urine is a sign of dehydration and bright coloured urine is usually associated with supplements. Does he take any vitamins at all?

Wee in a potty looks darker than wee in the loo as it is not diluted by loo water.

He's fine.

No he doesn't take any supplements at all. He always drinks lots of water which is another reason I was puzzled but also it is hot so maybe just needs a lot more than usual. Thank you.

vitamins, carrots, beetroots?
does it look the same all day long?
in the mornings the colour usually is a bit deeper.
ds wee in the mornings looks impressive, mainly due to him drinking a dark smoothie with his dinner.
