Any child care centre, whether in Wattle Grove, Cannington or any Perth suburb, is a lot more fun when all of the children are healthy. We know all parents want their children to be healthy, but sometimes kids are going to catch whatever is “going around.”
Good health, though, is more than not being sick. It is a state of well-being that enables your child to be happier and more sociable. A healthy child has a “glow” that an unhealthy child doesn’t.
If you want your child to glow with good health, you may be interested in a guide by the Government called Get Set 4 Life-Habits for Healthy Kids. Get Set 4 Life is for the parents of four year-olds and contains a wealth of health tips. We are going to look at more of them in detail next month, but would like to give you an overview today.
Healthy Habits = Healthy Children
While genetics may play a factor, there is a huge relationship between health and lifestyle. Get Set 4 Life contains advice about eating, play, learning, speech, language and sleep that promote good health. It has plenty of pictures that can make learning to be healthy fun for your child. There is a printable poster that shows your child how to incorporate healthy habits into each day. There are also stickers to help encourage your child and sources for further support.
Each topic has ideas you can read to your child and pictures that illustrate the idea. There are ideas for activities that help you and your child work together to promote good health. This is followed by supplemental information for parents.
