Children’s Health- Good Eating Habits for Kids

Posted by on May 29, 2017 in Health and Fitness, Obesity Prevention |

You are probably well aware that obesity in children is rocketing not just in America but all over the world. The combination of video games and unhealthy foods is turning our kids into real unhealthy people. All they want to do is sit down and play on their Playstation or Xbox and don’t play sports or ride their bikes anymore. Of course this isn’t true about every child but it certainly does some a lot of them up. But, by introducing good eating habits for kids you can prevent them from putting on extra weight that might be really harmful to their overall health. Here are some important tips that you can use today:

#1 – Remove the Fast Food

There’s no doubt about it that fast food does have its advantages. It is quick to buy and there’s no cooking or preparation required. But the majority of fast food is high in calories and high in fat content. The same can be said of many readymade meals, like the ones that take just 3 minutes in a microwave. There is no substitute for healthy food, so you should find the time to cook for your child at least 3-4 times a week. This way you can be sure they are eating healthy at least some of the time.

#2 – Limit Their Game Time

If your child comes home from school and just sits and plays games all night, this will do nothing for their health. What you need to do is limit the amount of time they play games and get them to go outside and do some sort of exercise. It can be as simple as riding their bike or even taking the dog for a walk. Just get them up and out of the house. Plus this can give you some nice alone time too! Good eating habits for kids are something you really should instil into your child. Make sure they eat several healthy meals a week and get them to do some exercise. This will see that they don’t put on any extra weight that is not only harmful to them but will also avoid them being called names at school.
