Keeping Your Kids Healthy This Spring Tips
- What Example Are You Setting? – Not surprisingly, the most effective way to get our children excited about healthy snacks and exercise is by modeling that behavior yourself. Begin by taking a look in your pantry and fridge and figure out what foods you want to be a regular part of your child’s day and what foods you could replace with healthier options. For example, instead of only providing fruit snacks – give them fruit snacks AND real fruit. It’s amazing what you can convince your child to try if you’re eating it too – toddlers always want what is on mommy’s plate!
- Get Outside – If the weather permits, always make time to play outside for at least 30 minutes. Go for a walk, play at a local park or on the swing set in your backyard. Open spaces are not only ideal for letting your child exhaust some of his limitless energy, they also encourage imagination and creativity! If you are able, join in on the imaginative fun with your kids while they play. Also, if you have the flexibility or extra help necessary to make it possible, make exercise a regular part of your day as well. Whether you run on a treadmill or do yoga or strength training – the more your child sees you being active and intentionally building up strength, the better!
