By Benedict McAlpine

Helpful information on nutrition and exercise can be found in abundance, but there’s also a record number of children who are obese. To try and keep your children as healthy as they can possibly be you’ll have to conjure up some creative ways of instilling habits which are good into them.

Junk food, as well as not doing enough exercise, are the biggest causes of children being overweight and unhealthy. Junk food is everywhere these days, and it is probably being offered at your child’s school. Therefore you ought to educate your children about this problem, in addition to cooking them healthy home meals and giving them nutritious snacks.

Let them know that eating too many sweets and drinking lots of soda can have a harmful effect on your body, even when you’re young. Now kids may not seem receptive or even interested in things like long term consequences, but if you repeat the message often enough, it may eventually get through.

If a child is having lots of fun they will not be aware of any dangerous weather conditions. So it’s up to you to make sure they aren’t running around in temperatures that are extremely hot or cold. In the winter time children may enjoy playing about in the snow, or going down a hill on a sledge, but you need to make sure they’re dressed properly with multiple layers, a hat and some gloves. If the temperature is under 10 degrees F, you should limit the time your kids spend outdoors.

If a child is having lots of fun they will not be aware of any dangerous weather conditions. So it’s your job to ensure your children are not running about in temperatures that are excessively hot or cold. Winter time is great for kids as they might like to play around in the snow, but you need to make sure that they’re adequately dressed, with hats, gloves and numerous layers. Limiting the time your kids are outdoors is wise if the temperatures is under 10 degrees F.

The same goes for very hot temperatures, over 90 F.
