It is important to encourage your child to indulge an opportunity to be physically active. Help your child become involved in a sport of his/her choice. Develop interest in sports as a family. Do specific exercises with your child to help him/her supplement normal physical activity. Run or jog at least three times a week as a family.
Discourage the use of junk foods. Try not to keep foods you don’t wish your child to consume in your house (rather than prohibit it). Read all labels carefully and educate your children to do likewise (not necessary if eating only raw fruits and vegetables—no labels). Follow a Hygienic regime of proper diet and lifestyle—consumption of fresh, raw fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds; take plenty of fresh air and sunshine; and exercise.
Here’s to a future of continued good health to you and your family.
