Make Room for Fruit
Eating fruit can also help your body stay energized and hydrated. Summer fruits not only taste great, but they also provide your body with water and a combination of nutrition, keeping your body healthy and happy. Dehydration is a common health risk during hotter months, and for some, it's due to the lack of a proper diet. Particularly children, older adults and athletes are more likely to lose body fluids quicker, according to the Mayo Clinic.
