Heat index values are extremely significant for babies and toddlers. Children regularly disregard the necessity to rest and replenish fluids. Thirst is a late symptom of dehydration - thus, maintaining hydration, particularly during long-lasting physical activities, is essential.
Perspiration is the body's default response to elevated temperatures, as it promotes the evaporation of sweat to achieve cooling.

When heat surpasses the body's release mechanisms, dehydration and overheating risks become pronounced.
