« Make healthy hydration the new norm »

How do your needs change over time ?

Water requirements change at different life stages. So how much water should people drink at each stage of their lives?

Hydration for breastfeeding women

During lactation, water intake needs to compensate for the loss of water through milk production. Milk is made of 88% water.

The EFSA therefore recommends that lactating women increase their water by about 700 mL/day, meaning an adequate intake of 2,700 mL/day (from food and drink), or approximately 2,200 mL/day from fluids.1
