Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Variety in beverage consumption contributes to reaching euhydration. However, the ability to access, purchase, prepare and drink a variety of beverages may be hindered in vulnerable population groups; these may include children, pregnant or breastfeeding women, individuals with physical or mental disabilities, elderly, ethnic minorities, refugees, or financially deprived individuals.

Qualitative and/or quantitative studies that evaluate beverage intake and identify barriers in vulnerable population groups are needed to develop education initiatives and public health policies towards euhydration for all.
