Healthy Child : Happy Home
I believe that the greatest gift you can give your family and the world is a healthy you. - Joyce Meyer
We do not value health, until sickness comes. If a child is healthy, he has hope, the one who has hope has everything for himself.
Every man's sickness and ill health is his personal property, which means we are all responsible for our health and also for the cheer we spread around if we are in the pink of health!
As a child I was always blessed with good health. And so I kept my parents away from the pain of carrying me again and again to the paediatrician. On the other hand, my baby brother was just the opposite. He kept my parents on toes as they kept rushing him to doctors.
The greatest wealth and happiness is indeed health and not pieces of gold.
Many children of India suffer from malnutrition. The cause is within us, but fortunately, the cure too is within us.
Children with good health are the wealthiest. “Health and cheerfulness naturally beget each other.” ~Joseph Addison. How true, isn't it?
Nutrition for toddlers should be food that is pure and natural - not processed with additives. Toddlers enjoy finger food. They need a break from purees and cereals. Feed them fruits or green vegetable snacks. Give apple slices and carrot sticks when they have enough teeth and ability to chew them. Be sure that your kids are up to date on their immunizations. Babies need strong bones, healthy weight to stay alert and active. Choose a natural drink for them - water. Don't let them become the slaves of TV and computers, push them to play outdoors and please, please - feed them healthy snacks!
To all the Indian parents - Raise happy kids : Raise healthy kids!
Sadly, parents today think of happiness in terms of their children's success, about shiny trophies and milestones. How many of them want them to be healthy first than successful? A child is pushed into the rat race right from kindergarten days.
Parents ~ let your child grow, let his imagination run wild, let him be healthy, mentally and physically, both! Do not script their lives. Make them eat their meals on time. Its too simple a strategy for happiness. Let them refuel their growing brains with regular meals and sound sleep. Apart from your unconditional love, striking a balance between eating and doing physical activity is important for them.
Every time a child falls ill, parents make a small promise somewhere in their hearts that no matter what, next time onward, they will take all precautions. But, next time never comes. No matter how much we shout our kids to stop their nuances, but when the same kid falls sick, we begin to miss his talks, his activities. After all, it’s the parents who suffer the most when kids fall sick. It breaks one’s heart to see the poor baby not doing any antics and missing school!
Don’t we all wish there were certain immunity boosting formulas which, if given to our kids, do not have any side effects and increase their resistance power against diseases and common ailments like flu and cold and make them immune!?
Many products on store shelves claim to boost or support immunity. Walk into a store, and you will find bottles of pills and herbal preparations that claim to “support immunity” or otherwise boost the health of your immune system. Rarely, do they stand by what they promise!
