Highland Spring for Kids is on the hunt for Britain's Most Active Family


Highland SprignAre you Britain's Most Active Family?

Now that summer's here there's never been a better time to get active, and to celebrate, Highland Spring are offering you the chance to win a VIP sporting Break.

Going for a bike ride, taking the dog for a walk or just getting out into the garden are great ways to spend time together as a family, as well as to stay active. If you're having a holiday from home this year, why not use it as an opportunity to try something new or even go back to your childhood and join the kids for some outdoor games - headstarts can be negotiated for the adults!  

Healthy hydration

Hydration is a vital part of a healthy and active lifestyle, and water is the healthiest refreshment for children and big kids alike.

HighlandDid you know…

  • Children  (age four to eight) should be drinking around 1.3 litres  of fluid a day to stay well hydrated?*
  • This increases to 1.47 litres a day for boys and 1.33 litres a day for girls age nine to 13.
  • Drinking more water helps children perform better in lessons: research shows being dehydrated can affect memory, concentration, coordination and reaction times.

Highland Spring pioneered the children's bottled water market in 2000 and the company now produces one of the leading kid's bottled waters in the UK. It is the UK's most trusted bottled water brand (Source: NOP 2011), meaning peace of mind for parents. Available in handy 330ml sports bottles, Highland Spring for Kids is ideal for lunchboxes, drinking during exercise and keeping hydration levels topped up at home and on the go.

Highland Spring for Kids is available in most major retailers in packs of 12.
