Having a sick kid can be scary and overwhelming. We are here to help you and your families conquer colds and illnesses with a holistic approach! But first, try these five tips to improve everyone’s health.
Five Tips to keep your family healthy
- Start the day with a healthy breakfast. Some people are not breakfast eaters but try to get quality protein and fats in their bellies to fuel their body and brain. Hard-boiled eggs, whole fat yogurt, berries, or a breakfast sandwich are quick and easy options!
- Hydrate! Encourage having a water bottle with you at all times. Drinking half your body weight in ounces of water will help keep you hydrated.
- Prioritize eating meals together. This makes for excellent quality time.
- Thirty minutes of physical activity! Whether it be chores like vacuuming or yard work, playtime, or family walks before or after meals.
- Limit the sugars. Your kid’s future health is dependent on what they consume, NOW! Creating a healthy relationship with dessert options is a great idea that will pay them back later in life. Adding a healthy dessert option at dinners will help teach them moderation while not focusing on restriction.
Here are my favorite healthy dessert options:
