Health Tips for Kids

Healthy habits should be seeded in a child during the childhood days. Healthy diet, healthy habits, and healthy routines should be taught to our children. A healthy thought infused in childhood will help the child when he or she turns into responsible individual.  Listed below are some health tips for children.

First of all teach the children about the importance of a healthy routine. Give them healthy breakfast as breakfast is the most important meal, especially for a child. Add a lot of fruits and vegetables in children’s diet. A healthy diet is what it all needs to make the children healthy basically. If the child avoids fruits, then go for fruit juices or salads. But make sure the child gets fruits’ extracts.


Children may not be aware of lots of health issues.  Teaching them the importance of health and fitness is a responsibility of us, parents.  Make the child drink enough amount of water.  Teach children basic exercises and make them do exercises daily.  Basic exercises like walking, skipping or swimming can be incorporated.  This will help them grow stronger.  Hygiene is the most important issue that should be taught to children.  Instruct them to wash hands before and after meals.  Make them brush their teeth twice daily.  Good dental care is vital at a young age since their gums are not strong.


Educate our children on ill effects of chocolates, ice creams, and fried foods etc. But don’t be too strict when they wish to consume those items. Make sure that they don’t grow as a habit. My child does not particularly like chocolates, but she does eat them during exam periods, to destress. 


Children need vitamins in large amount and sometimes they cannot gain enough vitamins from the food.  In that case consult a doctor to meet the child’s vitamin needs. The doctor may recommend some supplements and tonics.  Give those supplements to the children as doctor advised.  Alternatively, we may also purchase Multi-Vitamin tablets and Vitamin C tablets from the pharmacy for our child as these usually do not need prescription. 


Make sure the child gets enough amount of sleep.  A child needs to sleep more than adults.  Keep them active throughout the day and they will automatically get a good sleep at night because of the tiredness.  We can also tell them some bedtime stories to make them fall asleep.


Lastly, children generally expect lots of love and affection during the early days. So always instruct children with loads of love and they will definitely become smart and healthy.  Happy parenting!
