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) and PBS (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.
“Here is one of my favorite tips for parents to help kids stay healthy: they can help them develop a love of healthy foods. This could be done by planting & harvesting a garden together, going to the farmer’s market and sampling the delicious produce, or having them choose 1 healthy dinner/week (that they like), and then have them help cook, adding their own flair to make it their own.”
