In May 2019, the Scottish Urinary Tract Infection Network (SUTIN) launched a Children’s Hydration Campaign to convey good hydration benefits to children and young people.

Take a moment to watch our video and see how getting the right amount of water makes a big difference to how we feel, think and function.

Our Think2DrinkH2O resources include posters, charts and leaflets with tips on how to stay hydrated at any time of year.

These Think2DrinkH2O materials were developed in collaboration with child specialists, education and NHS partners and national organisations, including Antimicrobial Resistance and Healthcare Associated Infection Scotland (ARHAI), Care Inspectorate, Quarriers, NHS 24, Scottish Antimicrobial Prescribing Group and the Scottish Government.

Congratulations and thank you to our competition winners, Katie and Mirren, for their amazing poster creations and whose artwork was used as part of the resources supporting this campaign.
