The percentage of children visiting doctors, illnesses and allergies is much higher than ever before that is the root cause of each of these causes. Their minds and bodies are so young that it is the optimum time to begin teaching them the important lessons of their lives about how to truly take care of themselves and health prevails. After all, what they learn is what they know. Below are some simple steps to incorporate into your daily routine to get started on healthy habits.
1) Start getting started with water. It introduces a new habit every morning and all day: Start with water. The average adult body contains up to 70% water. Survival is needed. All the functions of our body are needed. Some of these functions help regulate body temperature, humid air, and help organs extract nutrients and eliminate toxins and excess salts. This is the basis for optimal health for all our cells, so we need water. And most people do not replace the lost amount on a daily basis because we did not create the habit of doing so. First in the morning when you wake up and your children come to the kitchen, get used to drinking at least one glass of water. During the day, have a glass of each meal and snacks, then 1 or 2 before going to bed. It's easy to get together if you put something in your mouth, make sure it starts with water. Try to work up to 8 glasses a day.
2) Make sure that fresh fruits and vegetables are always comfortable and easy to reach for their children when they are eating food. Make sure they learn that every time they eat, something from the valuable food group must be involved. It is also necessary to teach them to eat fruits and vegetables before eating and find out how much poison is on the many crops they are exposed on the market. Teach them the value of ecological wealth, as our bodies are not so exposed to toxins that obstruct and damage our body systems and functions.  Plan your meals and help prepare them with a list of tasks that must be done at each meal and rotate tasks. For example: table setting and cleaning, meal selection and preparation. Plan a plan for healthy meals this week. If they choose their food for the night, help them prepare and explain the process as they go and each ingredient nourishes the content. Allow meals to be placed on the plates with proper portions of food. Teach them cleanliness with meals. And most importantly, make sure you praise them. One of the greatest rewards of preparing for meals is the enjoyment that nutrition can bring to others, the enjoyment of flavors and the efforts to understand it.  After choosing foods this week, ask them to set up a grocery list to accommodate menus and take buy them grocery shopping. Teach them the nutrition content in the items they need, comparing them to other items that have less nutritional value in the store (eg Fresh products that can be made from cans from scratch). Show them how to read food labels and hazardous ingredients. Teach them that organic, healthy foods should be selected without additives, preservatives, genetically modified and hormone-free. The smaller delis and the market sometimes offer more healthier products and its owners are happy to help you in the teaching process.
5) The fear of new foods is virtually universal in children. Encourage the child to try a small amount of new meals at the beginning of the meal when she is hungry. Kids have more taste buds than adults and enhance the flavor of food, so be aware of it and appreciate it. There is some reason why liver and onions are on the menu of seniors, not children. It has changed flavor because it loses our sensitivity to the liver's lively taste. We recommend that children have small foods in which adults enjoy the child's natural curiosity. Never force or bribe a child to try a new food as it almost always erases the child's otherwise-developed preferences. If they do not like tastes today, that's okay. Evaluate your unique pallet, but at the same time realize that new palettes are being developed for new flavors. You should try it at a later time. It is recommended that you try within a month. Try, for example, the item, for example: they do not like tomatoes in a salad, they unseat them and sandwich them with other flavors to cover it slightly. Prepare these new flavors.
6) Use items other than food to reward you more often than you do. Make an excursion to the park or the library, not the ice cream. When children associate rewards with junk and unhealthy foods, it will become more and more desirable for them. On the other hand, if a child does not like his favorite food, he wants more. So, keep in mind the minimum amount of "rusty" foods (perhaps the special chocolates that come from holy or genuine daily holidays), only for adults who the parent needs to see. Every time they receive it, they learn that they are truly special occasional treatments with little nutrition, so they do not get it regularly.
