Your Childs Health is Important.
Nourishing Wellness in Delafield, WI can help you keep your children healthy, happy, and fit.
As parents, we want to keep our children healthy, happy, and fit. Unfortunately, our ideas of obtaining and their willingness to follow our plan are rarely the same. But we continue to make sure they are getting enough sleep, eating veggies, and doing some physical activity daily. Doing these things will help to protect your child’s immune system.
With busy schedules, frequent on the go eating, YouTube, and Video games, it seems like a losing battle, doesn’t it?
Do This To Keep Your Children Healthy
Three things play a significant role in the health of your child’s gut, nervous system, immune system, and that’s diet, lifestyle, and environment.
Building up your child’s immune system actually begins with their gut health. A healthy gut improves their ability to learn and affects their mood. It’s also the first line of defense against viruses and many common conditions such as asthma and food sensitivities.
Building gut bacteria is essential regardless of your age. In fact, the younger you start promoting it, the better off they are when they get older, and the less picky they become with healthy foods. So how can we do this?
As a nutritionist in Delafield, WI, it’s never too early to focus on protecting and building children’s immune systems through their gut bacteria. Here are some great ways to do that,
- Eating a well-balanced variety of food
- Set aside times for playing outside
- Introduce fermented foods such as yogurt, or kefir
- Limit the use of antibiotics
Some of these may seem to be an impossible task, but there are hope and time.
Did you know that a child needs to be introduced to a new food 30 times before trying it? So there’s hope for them to try new foods, eventually.
You can also invite them to help with dinner or make their smoothies. Some children will at least try the things that they make.
There are many foods that aid in your child’s mood, such as food additives, which have been linked to hyperactivity. Sugary foods make your children feel full and are also linked to hyperactivity and behavioral problems. Gradually limiting these types of food will allow more room for healthy foods.
How Can a Holistic Nutritionist Help With Children’s Health
We want to help our children to grow up to live healthy and happy lives. Holistically raising them gives them the advantage. It helps them to be smarter, happier, and healthier by their food choices, what they spend their time doing and being active.
The over usage of electronics, poor nutritional habits, and lack of activity will be brought into their adult lives, and it’s even harder as an adult to break these habits.
However, change is always possible, and it begins with you.
Contact us today, and we'll help you start prioritizing your child's diet and activity and discuss ways to get and keep them healthy. We begin with learning about their current diet, movement, and expectations.
