     Healthy food for your kids
    Even if you know what’s healthy for your kids, it’s hard when they want toaster pastries or sweet cereals for breakfast. Some mothers have found that letting kids help prepare healthy […]

    • A healthy lifestyle for family must because family rests on the parents’ lifestyle and parents lifestyle rests of their p remarriage thinking that sticks in both man’s and woman’s mind. That is why different people enjoy different family life style in every country.

      Give your children building blocks for a healthy lifestyle by teaching them the importance of good nutrition and regular physical activity. Eating well and being physically active every day are keys to your child’s health and well-being.

      Eating too many high calorie foods and getting too little physical activity can lead to excessive weight gain and physical health problems, such as type 2 diabetes and high blood pressure, now being diagnosed in children. Obesity also is associated with an increased risk of other health problems such as depression.

      Help your children develop healthy eating habits at an early age. Nutritious food is something to enjoy. It helps children grow strong and gives them energy.

      Set an example for active living by moving with your kids. Your kids pay attention to you, they really do!

      Teach your children that good health depends on the right balance between what they eat and how much they move.

      Although the researchers don’t know for sure why family meals are so effective, they note that homemade meals are typically lower calorie. Plus, eating together lets adults model good behavior and intervene when behaviors threaten to become bad habits.

      Those family meals shouldn’t include the television, however. That’s because children who regularly watch TV during meals have unhealthier diets. In one study, for example, children whose families rarely or never turned on the TV during family meals were less likely to eat chips, soda and other junk foods

    • If you want to keep your family healthy, you may have to lead the way and encourage them to practice some new habits. This may include areas such as diet, exercise, reducing stress or giving up harmful activities such as smoking. If you keep the following tips in mind, your whole family can be healthier and enjoy a better quality of life.

      One of the most important components of health has to do with staying active. A sedentary lifestyle puts you and your family at risk for many health problems, including obesity, hypertension and diabetes. There are many ways to stay fit and active. If you choose activities that are enjoyable as well as healthy, you’re more likely to continue doing them.

      Swimming, something the whole family can enjoy, is one of the healthiest and forms of exercise. You can find both kid and adult swim lessons in NYC, which make time spent in the water both safer and more fun. Other fun activities that help you stay fit include walking, hiking, biking and dancing.

    • Keep Healthy Snacks Around the House

      It can be challenging to get your family on a healthier diet. Junk foods and other unhealthy temptations are all around. Even if you cook wholesome meals, there will still be the issue of what people consume between meals. One way you can reduce this temptation is to make sure there are healthy snacks available at home.

      If you keep nutritious snacks such as fresh fruit, nuts, whole grain crackers and healthy dips around, there will always be something to munch on. When your family members are heading off to school or work, make sure they are packing a healthy snack. That way they won’t have to get something out of a vending machine or fast food joint when they get hungry between meals.

      These tips can all help your family enjoy better health. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle can be challenging if everyone has a busy schedule. Eating better, exercising regularly and adopting other healthy habits all take a certain amount of planning. They key is to make healthy living a priority so you don’t consider it an inconvenience to make a few positive changes.

    • If you’re trying to build healthier family habits, a goal chart is a good way to keep score. A chart, posted on the refrigerator or other highly visible spot, can remind family members to pay attention to eating and exercise habits.

      Choose family goals, such as exercising every day and eating fruits and vegetables. Keep track of and praise those who meets their goals. And when the whole family achieves the goals, do something fun together to celebrate.

     How to decorate using Duct Tape
    You might think duct tape is only good for patching pipes, but duct tape can be bought in many beautiful colors. Duct tape is easy to cut with a knife with a sharp blade and you […]

    • My 10-year-old granddaughter and I had the discussion about “duct tape” or “duck tape.” To our surprise, both words are acceptable. During World War II, the tape was called duck tape because water would slide over it like water off a duck’s back. Later, because of its usage, it became to be called duct tape.
