Summer Drink Recipes
We all know how important it is to stay hydrated over the hot summer months and even more so if you’re having chemotherapy or are pregnant.
We’ve got some tips and tasty recipes that are alternatives to plain water, perfect for any celebrations during the warmer months!
Tips and tricks to stay hydrated
Sip fluids throughout the day, rather than trying to drink a lot at once. Sucking on ice cubes, ice-blocks or eating jelly can also increase your fluid intake.
If your stomach is upset, try drinking fizzy drinks such as soda water or dry ginger ale.
Try adding some different flavours to your water.
Carry a bottle of water with you so you never find yourself without something to drink - especially when you’re out and about.
If you’re undergoing chemotherapy, aim to drink more water on the days leading up to your treatment day.
