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.
“Getting kids to drink water can sometimes be tricky. Try making fun ice cubes for kids. You can make them colorful by adding a small mint leaf to each cube or consider food coloring. You can make flavored ice cubes with a little squirt of lemon or lime juice or add a small berry (blueberry, raspberry, or piece of a strawberry).”
