5 Foods That Can Help You Stay Hydrated

Eating foods that have high water contents can help you stay hydrated. It can be a hassle to remind yourself to drink water throughout the day. So, incorporating certain foods can help you maintain healthy hydration levels without having to drink 8 cups of water a day.

Let’s go over 5 foods that can help you stay hydrated.


Watermelon is one of the most hydrating foods you can have. It is 92% water and also has nutrients such as vitamin C, vitamin A and magnesium. It is very refreshing and can be the perfect snack on a warm summer day. You can also incorporate it in different salads.


Cantaloupe is similar to watermelon since it is a type of melon. It is 90% water and contains 2 grams of fibre per cup, which can help keep you full. Many have cantaloupe as a side dish with their breakfast since it is very refreshing.


Oranges are full of vitamin C and potassium, which can boost your immune system and heart health. But, they are also 88% water, which can help boost your hydration as well. Citrus fruits like oranges can also help protect you from kidney stones. They help flush out your body while giving it some extra hydration.


Cucumbers are made up almost entirely of water, having a water content of 95%. They can provide you with a small amount of nutrients including vitamin K, potassium and magnesium. They are low in calories which can make them the perfect hydrating snack if you are also counting your calorie intake.


Similarly to cucumbers, celery is made up almost entirely of water. With a water content of 95%, celery also contains fibre, vitamin K, and potassium. You can use celery in almost any salad and can also put it in many juices or smoothies.
