Welcome to a new category of my blog simply called ‘Healthy Tips.” Many times, when I write articles for various publications, I need to find sources for the story. Recently, I wrote an article for Yahoo Shine (click here) about keeping kids healthy. I was looking for experts and parents to chime in and give their favorite ‘tips’ to help kids (and their families) lead a healthy lifestyle.
The feedback for the story was amazing. The sources had some fantastic points of view that could not be ignored, and I thought their opinions should be viewed on the Your Health Journal web site.
So, enjoy my new series, with some ‘great’ insight from some ‘great’ people giving exceptional and educational points of view.
“Instead of counting calories or pounds (traditional), ask your child to build in one good habit that they can easily accomplish. Once this habit has been established, proceed to adding the next habit. This approach is not only “healthier” in nature, but it will enforce quality of life as opposed to irrelevant and intangible numbers.”
