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.
“Have kids enjoy dark leafy greens such as kale, collard greens, spinach and Swiss chard along with healthy fats such as avocados- teach them how to eat one-ingredient foods instead of eating processed foods with ingredients they cannot pronounce. Focus on plat-based foods rich in vitamins and minerals- you can also make a great tasting green juice with these vegetables along with an apple or carrot for a touch of sweetness.”
