We all want to do our best when it comes to raising healthy kids, but you may wonder, “Where do I even start?” Luckily I have put together 7 tips to raising healthy kids to get you in the right direction. These tips will help you set healthy habits in your children early so they can live long and healthy lives as adults.
1. Good Nutrition
As parents, raising healthy kids starts with good nutrition. When they were babies this was easy. They were either breast fed or formula fed, but either way, their bodies got much of the good nutrition they needed. Now that they are older, the idea of good eating is tricky, especially if you have picky eaters. First you must lead by example. Don’t expect your child to eat a healthy salad and whole grain bread while you munch on potato chips and fried food. Always have several healthy options on hand.
