5 Healthy Habits That Every Child Should Follow

5 Healthy Habits That Every Child Should Follow

Few things in life take longer than habits to be inculcated and eventually to die out. Every parent tries in his or her way to teach the child certain healthy habits, those that they wish would be followed long enough to be internalized by them. Certain healthy habits that every child should follow are:

  1. Include a lot of vegetables in the diet: There is an array of vegetables available in the market, which is replete with rich nutritional values. Though children are generally averse to the idea of eating vegetables, it is your duty to inculcate in them the habit of eating vegetables and constantly remind them of their rich nutritional benefits.
  2. Never skip breakfast: Breakfast is the most important meal of the day and is often the most ignored. Most children have the propensity to skip breakfast if they are late and generally they are seldom reprimanded by their parents. As a parent, you must make it a point not to take this lightly and severely insist on a healthy breakfast every morning.
  3. Indulge in physical activities: With the advent and easy access of technology, going out to play in has become a distant reality, one that is never explored. However, it goes without saying that nothing can substitute the physical and mental benefits that a physical activity entails. It not only keeps the body of your child fit but also helps in keeping the mind fresh.
  4. Read daily: Few things in life can be as rewarding and fulfilling as reading a book. However the habit does not come easy and as a parent it is your responsibility to induce in them this. Try to make your child read a few pages everyday till they take it up themselves out of their volition.
  5. Drink water and skip the soda: The many flavored sodas, which are available serve as a more palatable alternative to the drab water for the children. Though the choice may seem convenient, it must be snipped off right from the beginning. Sodas are packed with harmful preservatives and should be duly avoided by children. Instead, they must choose the bottle of water to quench the thirst.

You should give only mother's milk fo 6 months. Breast milk contains enough water to quench the thirst of baby, all prelacteals including gripe water should be avoided.

All babies spit food. Please do not worry about it. If the baby is active and playful, you can try to offer food with different colour, texture and taste and see what your baby prefers.

दिन में कई बार बच्चे खाना खाते ही potty जाते है जो की नार्मल है।। आप बस ये देखें की potty बहुत पतली तो नहीं है। अगर जयादा पतली है तो सबसे पहले जीवन रक्षक खोल (Ors) शुरू कर दे और आसपास के किसी अच्छे डॉक्टर की सलाह ले।।

Treatment of distal (type 1) and proximal (type 2) renal tubular acidosis. The approach to therapy in distal (type 1) and proximal (type 2) renal tubular acidosis (rta) is determined by the primary defect in each disorder: decreased distal acidification and impaired proximal bicarbonate reabsorption, respectively how rta is treated depends on what's causing it. If it's a reaction to a certain drug, treatment may involve stopping use of the drug or changing the dosage. If an underlying disease or other condition is causing rta, it will be treated until that condition resolves. To treat the effects of rta, it's necessary to restore a normal acid level to the blood. To do this, doctors prescribe alkaline medicines, such as sodium bicarbonate, that help to lower the blood's concentration of acid. Most of the time, treatment for rta is effective. Kids whose rta is caused by a genetic defect may need treatment for the rest of their lives. The good news is that sticking with their treatments lets kids remain healthy.

Keep trying mothers milk whenever baby cries (demand feed. When ever baby is hungry give breast feeds, slowly they will get used to breast milk. If mother is having sufficient milk there won't be any problem for the baby to take. Keep trying with a positive attitude.

Any medicine for constipation is temporary, the basic reason is lack of fiber in the diet. Give just 2 milk feeds plus 3-4 solid feeds, inclubing fibrous items, e. G dalia, cornflakes, salad, green leafy veg, fruits like cheeku, mango etc.
