Healthy Happy Children

When we say Health is wealth how many of us actually understand the deeper meaning behind it. Moreover I love quoting it when it comes to children’s health issues. Even with a small bank account, the one who is healthy and happy finds himself with great wealth.
Hence it is so important that our children grow up to be healthy in every way. Being a pre school teacher for the past 25 years, I have seen over thousand children grow in time. Each child is beautiful  and different from each other,  special and incomparable. I have often noticed some kids remain absent at home having constant cough and cold. Parents are so tensed when kids fall sick.
I always tell parents to provide children with a a positive happy environment supported by good nutrition and healthy food.


Giving a balanced nutritious diet to their children should be the top priority for parents. Healthful eating is a very important factor in a parent’s diet and the diet of children and healthful eating affects all of our personal well-being. There are many wonderful benefits from healthful eating, such as improved health and feeling much better about oneself. Eating healthfully doesn’t mean you have to give up all of your favourite food items. Eating healthfully means a well-balanced diet, full of nutritious foods and drinks, and it means limiting the amount of fat, sugar and carbohydrates you consume daily and also substituting it for healthier choices. Therefore, I believe healthful eating should begin in children to enrich them with healthier lives, escaping the darkness of diseases and deadly health problems.This aids in overall mental and physical growth of the child.

As a teacher I stress on healthy snacks in class and personally take rounds during snack time to check tiffin boxes of kids. I discourage junk food and encourage fruit n home cooked wholesome food. Milk and milk supplements taken in early years is a boon to bones, teeth and skin of young children. On open days i tell parents to take their children out in parks n gardens, playing outdoors and getting their dose of vitamin D. Activities that we can encourage are playing with them, throwing around a football or playing a game of basketball. There are many outdoor and indoor activities to consider, such as taking a family walk in the neighborhood or gym or playing a simple game like Hide and seak. Activities should be fun and interesting so children will continue to be interested in them. Therefore, never keep doing the same activities; mix them up at times.
