Cut back on the sweetened beverages

Soda and carbonated drinks are loaded with sugar which is extremely unhealthy. Remove such drinks from your refrigerator and replace them with healthy drinks like homemade lemonade.

Take a look at the grocery list

If you want your child to follow a healthy lifestyle, you will have to sacrifice a few food items. Begin by consciously keeping an eye on your grocery list and removing unhealthy food items because if you won’t buy them your kid won’t eat them.

Decrease food portion, increase number of meals

Another very wise way is to lessen down quantity on the child’s plate and give them food after every few hours. This will satisfy the appetite and stabilize the blood sugar level and provide nutrients to the body throughout the day.

Increase physical activity

Put an end to video games and send your child out to play so that her regime involves some physical activity. Once they are back from the playtime, you can ask them to help you with household chores.
