7 Foods to Help Caregivers and Older Adults Stay Hydrated This Summer

  1. Lettuce. Another type veggie that helps keep you hydrated is lettuce. More than 90% of lettuce is water. Dark green leafy lettuce is best for both nutrition and hydration.
  2. Watermelon. A summer staple in most households, it is one of the most hydrating foods you can find. In addition to being composed largely of water, watermelon also contains potassium, calcium and magnesium. All three nutrients can help rebalance your body in the summer heat.
  3. Grapes. Throw this tasty little fruit in the freezer and you will enjoy it even more on a hot summer day. Largely made of water, just one cup of grapes contains almost one quarter of the Vitamin C and K that you need in a whole day.
  4. Tomatoes. High in water content, they are also rich in cancer fighting lycopenes. What is also surprising about tomatoes is how rich they are in Vitamin C. Just 3.5 ounces of tomatoes can provide you with 22% of the daily Vitamin C recommendation.

We hope this list helps caregivers in the Fall River, New Jersey area that we are proud to serve plan healthier summer menus this year.
