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.
“Don’t push health and wellness onto your kids. Kids tend to resent it when parents try and force healthy choices on them on them. Instead of having them exercise at the gym get them out in the park playing games. When making food choices allow them to be a part of the decision making process so that they feel empowered to make healthy choices on their own.”
