My top tips:
- Always make sure that children have access to a regular supply of water, as they dehydrate faster.
- On particularly hot days, always make sure you have access to enough water.
- For car journeys, keep different sizes of water bottles e.g. smaller bottles for children and larger bottles for parents, in a cool bag with ice packs.
- If not using a cool bag, keep bottled water in a cool, dry place to help maintain its quality.
- For short and long-haul flights make sure you drink enough water before flying..."
National Geographic has more information on where you can cool down, naturally, here.
