Healthy Tips for Kids
As the saying goes “Health is Wealth”, Health is the most important things for sustaining a happy life. Hence it becomes our prime responsibility to take care of it. Even then in the rush of life we tend to forget the actual needs of our body. We don’t indulge into right eating practices and no proper exercise routine and so on. Kids too in the time being become part of this unhealthy system as they too are treating their bodies pretty badly by eating a poor diet and not getting enough physical activity, instead eating and doing other things they consider more appealing. Even when the parents know and try to follow healthy lifestyle, then too many a time’s kids don’t realize how fun and rewarding living a healthy life really is.

If kids set an example for their friends they’ll be much more likely to stay healthy. Kids have the power to do great things, including changing the health of our future generation.

Some Healthy Tips for your Kids:
  •  Educate your Child and his/her friends about how healthy habits can improve quality of life –make them learn the importance of right eating and exercising daily so that they may take their own decision judiciously.
  •  Exercise with your kids or let them plan outdoor games and activities with friends. Exercise can be fun when done in group and a way to spend time together.
  •  Give your child healthy and appealing foods, which should be nutritionally balanced having some food from each food group and it should be convenient for the child to eat and be palatable.
  •  Breakfast is very important meal of the day as it refuels the body for the entire day so make sure that your child eats a proper breakfast. He/ she should eat variety of fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grain cereals and lean meat and drink milk and plenty of water. Small and frequent meals are best for a growing kid.
  •  Take the help of your child to do your grocery and food shopping as they will learn more about food.
  •  Even taking your child’s help in cooking will create their interest in eating the food they have cooked themselves or at least have helped you to prepare.
  •  Schedule your child’s daily activities including time for some physical activity, games and some leisure or hobby courses depending on his or her school timings and meal timings.
  •  When your kid spend time playing on computer or watching T.V., insist on them to get on the web and look out for some websites for kids and make them sit and read from these websites and then ask them to use the information in their daily lives.
