You should be strict about deadlines for sleeping and form a proper routine for your kid—be it on school nights or holidays. You should convince yourself to say no to your kids and convey the importance of sleep with bedtime stories or healthy conversations. Afterall, we all know ‘Early to bed and early to rise, makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise’.

Skipping meals

Ensure that your child consumes food at regular intervals. You should coax your child gently if your child denies eating certain meals. Say no to your kids to skip the morning breakfast. It forms the most important meal of the day that fills the body with required nutrition.

Overall hygiene

Healthy habits concerning hygiene and cleanliness should be inculcated to your child. Stress the importance of washing hands before and after meals and after using the toilets. Also, promote healthy eating by including nutrient-rich vegetables and fruits in your kid’s diet plan and say no to your kids to eat junk food.

Fewer video games, more exercise

Make a specific time for your child to use electronic devices or play video games. At the same time, encourage them to play outdoor games and take part in physical activity. Exercising will help in boosting immunity to fight infections. Say no to your kids over excessive playing with electronic devices.

No gadgets at mealtimes

Healthy habits would make your child more active and happy. Say no to kids when it comes to watching television or the computer that will make your child lethargic. Introduce strict rules of not using gadgets at mealtimes.
