Seven essential healthy habits for your children

Busy lifestyles can be difficult on family’s health. Rushing to and from school and work can make it hard to find time to be physically active.

Choosing unhealthy snacks and take-away foods, spending free time watching television or in front of the computer can start to become a regular occurence. However, these choices can be dangerous for children’s health.

That’s why it is so important to make a conscious decision to follow a healthy lifestyle. Also, vitamins are not just for adults. Children need their fair share too and while a healthy diet may provide their recommended daily allowance of vitamins and nutrients, it is known that kids can be picky eaters.

Beeline Healthcare specially formulated for Irish children can help ensure they get the vitamins and nutrients they need, detailing seven healthy habits for children.

Eat more fruit and vegetables and aim for at least five servings of fruit per day and two servings of vegetables per day.

Eat less fast food and make healthier fast food choices.

Manage portion sizes. Children should eat little and often to keep hunger at bay to meet their daily nutritional needs.

Get active each day with at least one hour each day being physically active.

Choose water as a drink and drink at least two glasses or bottles of water a day. Avoid fizzy drinks.

Limit ‘screen time’ and spend less than two hours a day on ‘small screen’ entertainment.

Grow your own! Growing vegetables and herbs at home can be a fun way to teach children where food comes from and to encourage them to eat a more varied diet.

Most of the seven habits above are centred on making healthy food choices but what about the fussy eaters or when no amount of encouragement can change a little wilful mind ?

The Beeline Healthcare range of childrens vitamins can help bridge the gap and include Beeline Kids Vitamin D3 Drops, Beeline Kids Multivitamins and Minerals Effervescent Tablets Sugar Free, Beeline Kids Vitamin D3 Chewable Tablets, Beeline Teenager Vitamin D3 and Multivitamins Chewable Tablets.
