Healthy habits for kids have always been driven by parents who care deeply about the choices they make and the steps they take to ensure a safer environment at home, in schools and in communities at large. Today, many kids are overweight or obese due to their inactive and sedentary lifestyle, a huge concern that needs to be addressed.

An active lifestyle and a few healthy habits will help you maintain a healthy childhood and prevent health issues in later stages of life.

It is vital to create healthy habits early on. Below are few tips and smart choices for the family to be healthy and happy. And remember that, children always try to imitate their elders.

  • Healthy breakfast refuels the body and provides energy for the rest of the day.
  • Always try to eat meals with kids, even if you are busy.
  • Kids should be taught to take time in eating by chewing the food completely.
  • Your child’s diet should contain vegetables and fresh fruits; at least 2 cups of fruit and 2 1/2 cups of vegetable every day.
  • Try to include fibres like whole grains, oats, rye, brown rice and whole-wheat in the diet.
  • Kids should consume good amount of fluids.
  • Do not force your child to overeat as it will only increase the overall mass in their body.

Avoid using steroids:

Kids health is the only reason that we should not use steroids or its supplements. These steroidal medicines will in turn adversely affect in many different ways like premature balding, mood swings, sleeping issues, aching joints and difficulty in peeing.


Sleep is a very crucial part of your child’s life as it helps in developing their metabolism and resets their moods.

Staying healthy at school:

Viruses cause many childhood illnesses. All it takes is a single child to bring a virus to the school for the spread to begin. Consider this typical scenario — when a child who has a cold, coughs or sneezes in the classroom, the children sitting nearby inhale the infected respiratory droplets and the cold spreads. To avoid illnesses at school, you will have to follow steps:

  • Frequent hand-washing before eating food, after using the toilet, after blowing nose, coughing and sneezing.
  • Use hand sanitizer whenever necessary.
  • Kids should stay current on his/her vaccinations including flu vaccine.
  • Avoiding close contact with anyone who has an illness at school.

An active lifestyle and a few healthy habits will help you maintain a healthy childhood and prevent health issues, such as diabetes, heart disease, asthma and high blood pressure in later stages of life.
