Is there more to hydration than water?

Water is a great choice for staying hydrated, but it isn't your only option. Beverages such as milk, juice and herbal tea can also help you meet your daily fluid needs. Foods also contribute to your daily fluid needs. Many fruits and vegetables, such as watermelon and spinach, are 90 percent or more water by weight.
