5 Steps to Keep Your Kids Healthy in summer

Summer season is tormenting in a lot of ways and, with the mercury consistently on the rise through the season, it becomes all the more difficult to ensure sound health. While simple lifestyle modifications can help safeguard against a lot of summer woes, keeping your kids healthy and agile in summer can be truly demanding given their proactiveness and long outdoor hours spent in playfields with their schools shut for a long vacation.
In order to ensure good health for your kids, here are few tips that you can adopt to evade any health hazards for your little ones:


1. Know what you are feeding them

Did you know that 85% of the summer diseases are related to the gastric system of the body? Whether your kids are heading to the school or to a summer camp, it is very important for you to keep an eye on what they are eating. Always give them a packed lunch with homemade food. However, make sure you do not put any item in there which might get spoilt because of the heat. Prepare fresh food and offer it to your children. This will help your children eat healthy and they will stay far away from fast food and other roadside food items.

2. Maintain a routine

While your kids may surely be enjoying the break from the grind, it is important for you to ensure that they have a set schedule for the vacation. Summer days can be extremely weary and it is important to keep up with mild physical exercises. Ensuring that your kids adhere to a healthy mix of rest and physical activity is a welcome step in battling the scorching summer months effectively.

3. Keep them hydrated

Like we have always said, staying hydrated is the best way to stay healthy. Given that kids indulge in lot of physically exhausting activities, they are likely to dehydrated sooner than usual. To ensure the energy levels are high and kids have a healthy immune system, you must make them drink plenty of liquids including water & other refreshing drinks.

4. Feed fruits and veggies

Eating healthy is the key to a healthy life during summers. You must feed enough veggies and seasonal fruits to your kids.
