Engage in hobbies together
A lot of kids nowadays spend too much time in front of their gadgets. Help your kids to develop other hobbies that will allow them to hone their innate talents and skills while growing up. Ask your kids about things they like doing and are interested in --- this could be anything from arts, sports, music, dance or even just letting them help around the house doing household chores. Not only do you get to spend more time together, you also get to bond with your children and make memories with them that you’ll both cherish.
Enroll your kids in a sports clinic
Letting your kids join a sports clinic helps them to make new friends while learning a new sport. Kids who are involved in sports early on learn values like discipline and teamwork, and it also helps them develop their physical health which is important for growing children. While sports clinics and classes are usually available during summers, there are year-long programs that are being offered in schools and even in your village or neighborhood. Ask your kid’s school if they have sports program available for kids that your child can be a part of.
Let your kids help you in cooking healthier meals
Getting kids to eat healthier can be challenging for some parents, and some kids are picky about eating healthy kinds of food, especially vegetables. To encourage your kids to eat healthier, let them join you in preparing and cooking their food. This also gives them an early start when it comes to being conscious about food and nutrition, since studies have shown that one of the best things you can do for your health is to cook at home. According to a New York Times article*, “Inviting children into the kitchen and involving them at a very young age fosters a habit that will have lifelong benefits.”
Give them food and supplements rich in probiotics
Growing children need a lot of nutrients to help them in this crucial time of their physical and mental development. Aside from vitamins and minerals, they also need good bacteria to help them absorb nutrients from food better and aid with good digestion. When it comes to healthy digestion and good immunity, probiotics play a big role in helping your kids maintain a happy and healthy tummy. Simply put, probiotics are “microorganisms (such as lactobacillus) that when consumed (as in a food or a dietary supplement) maintains or restores beneficial bacteria to the digestive tract.”**
These are just some of the health benefits of probiotics according to The Harvard Medical School***
- improves immune function
