Mexico Vacation: Food and Water Safety for Toddlers

  1. Drink the purified water variety in Mexico. You will find it by the name of ‘Agua Pura.’
  2. If you’re staying at all-inclusive resorts, do verify if they serve purified. If not, you can buy your own for the stay.
  3. The only significant risk your toddlers face is the untreated Mexican water for the bath time. Since toddlers are too small to understand, they can accidentally or unknowingly take some untreated water while bathing.
