As the saying goes “ Health is Wealth”… Health is the most important thing for sustaining a happy life and hence it becomes our prime responsibility to take care of it. In the rush of life, we tend to forget the actual needs of our body. We don’t indulge into right eating practices or in proper exercise routine and so on. Kids too, in the time being, become a part of this unhealthy system as they eat poor or insufficient diets.
Healthy food rewards us with a healthy life.
Here are 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 playing daily (outdoor play).
- Exercise with your kids or let them plan outdoor games and activities with friends.
- Exercise can be fun when done in a group and a way to spend time together.
- Give your child healthy and appealing foods, which should be nutritionally balanced. It should be convenient for the child to eat and attractive too !
