Every child needs a reasonable physical, social and emotional environment for their growth and wellbeing. Safety of the children is our priority. Therefore, healthy childhood is necessary to have a good start in life. Good health is an essential foundation for the development of an individual.
There is a need to improve access and quality of ‘Essential Health Care’ for our children, helping to save millions of lives. Majority of deaths occur despite existing and affordable treatments.
So, what does it take to ‘Raise a Healthy Child’?
Well, nowadays, with substantial health issues occurring, to raise a healthy child will not be easy. Stress levels in families present a massive impact on a child’s growth.
Today’s kids are either obese or underweight due to their unhealthy eating habits such as the wrong choice of snacks, takeaway fast foods and all kinds of junk foods, with no physical activities at all.
Let’s learn some simple methods for “Healthy Growth of Our Children”.
* Immunisation and breastfeeding are the first steps to a healthy life.
*Proper Nutrition is every individual’s right; therefore, packed and processed foods must be avoided.
*Consuming fruits and vegetables regularly, can boost the vitality.
*Drinking water in regular intervals rejuvenates the body and prevents dehydration.
*Outdoor activities improve the kids – psychological and physical health. Regular exercise and physical activities such as sports, improve their immune system.
*Good sleeping habits help the children to relax and improve alertness and performance in day-to-day activities. Children with adequate sleep are less prone to psychological and behavioural issues. Sufficient and peaceful sleep can be magical.
*Emotional wellness is a significant factor in the growth of the children. Sense of emotional security, family attachment, positive relationship with people, integrity and self-development are the few highly essential factors that every child need, for creating a healthy and safe future.
