Water for Education
Here at Edgar’s we would like to support the provision of drinking water dispensers within schools to protect the health and assist the hydration of both pupils and staff. However, we understand that in order to persuade children of the benefits, it is important that water is presented in an easy to use and hygienic way - and preferably served chilled.
A school, college or university’s requirements are quite unique from many other sites where we provide water, but with Edgar’s expert team involved we can soon find a package that will suit you.
Hydration is important for all of us, but especially to children...
By the time a child starts to feel thirsty they have already lost more than 20% of their ability to perform both physically and mentally. As a direct result of a lower concentration span there can also be increased classroom disruption.
Despite efforts by the Government and The National Healthy Schools Programme (NHSP), two-thirds of children are still not getting enough drinking water and, astonishingly, approximately 20% of children drink no water at all, according to research conducted by the Department of Health and Food Standards Agency.
On the subject of childhood obesity, often many children eat too much because they think that they are hungry, when the truth is they are simply thirsty.
Let’s not forget that busy staff members can be affected by dehydration too!
Edgar’s would like to work with you to help solve these issues and start young people off on the road to a healthier lifestyle and can offer options like the VersaFiller water fountains which are specially designed for high capacity use.
