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.
My tip is substituting dangerously fatty desserts with one that is far healthier, for instance choosing frozen yogurt versus ice cream. Menchie’s, the world’s leading frozen yogurt franchise, is a self-serve frozen yogurt shop, meaning there is unlimited choices of toppings children can choose from. However, this is a great chance for parents to teach their kids in a fun environment the importance of portion control and choosing the right toppings like granola and nuts as opposed to fudge and chocolate.
