Good health is the greatest and most valuable gift we can give to our kids. Being equipped with the knowledge and understanding of proper child healthcare will decrease your trips to the doctor and enhance your baby’s health.
1. Hunger over desire
Ensuring your child is well fed is more important than giving into food desires. Children will always want food that is unhealthy. As parents you get to decide what they eat and in what quantity. Stocking healthy food and cutting down or completely removing unhealthy options is all in your hands. A well balanced and healthy diet is the very first thing you need for your child’s health.
2. Decision makers
You don’t need to be a complete control freak when it comes to eating habits. Present a variety of healthy options and allow your children to pick and choose what they want to eat. This goes for meals as well as snacks.
3. An active lifestyle
More and more children can be seen glued to TV’s and other gadgets. As a parent you need to monitor the time they spend on sedentary activities and encourage more physical activity. Children need to run around and play out in the open instead of staring at a screen all day long. This benefits physical, mental and emotional development of the child.
4. Kids follow what they see around them! You need to set the right expectations and be a role model by following routines and healthy practices for your child to mirror your activities.
5. Positive Environment
Creating a positive environment for your children is a necessity. Children who have positivity around them grow to be more stable and emotionally strong individuals. Stress can reduce disease fighting activities in the body which increases the chances of your child becoming ill.
6. Cleaning Habits
Make your child understand the need to be clean and wash hands before eating and after any outdoor activity. This will help avoid common health issues and boost immunity. Use soap and water whenever possible rather than wipes or hand wash.
Instead of lecturing or forcing your kid into exercising, make it the most fun part of the day. Cycling, swimming, running or whatever the kid enjoys.

It’s not always easy to encourage your children to eat a balanced diet.
Eating breakfast, even if it’s just a banana and a glass of milk, kick-starts the body and makes it easier to maintain lasting energy throughout the day.
It’s easy to reach for chips or biscuits when you and your children feel like nibbling on something, but these snacks tend to be low in nutrients and high in calories.
Make water the drink of choice at meal times, and keep juice and sweet drinks as occasional treats.
You decide which foods to buy and when to serve them. Though kids will pester their parents for less nutritious foods, adults should be in charge when deciding which foods are regularly stocked in the house. Kids won’t go hungry.
While juice has valuable nutrients and gives a concentrated energy boost for active, growing bodies, kids should go for water first when they are thirsty, not sugar-sweetened drinks.
Kids should start eating Better not everything they get.
Start the day with a healthy breakfast.
Let kids help plan one meal each week and eat together as often as possible.
Eat more vegetables and fresh fruits.
Eat more whole grains (e.g., oats, brown rice, rye, crackers, whole-wheat pasta).
Drink plenty of fluids.
Serve a variety of foods.
Be a role model and eat healthy yourself.
When trying to teach good eating habits, try to set the best example possible.
