Importance of the Health and Wellbeing life skills PROGRAM for children
Every parent wants their child to be healthy and happy. However, a study in The Journal of the American Medical Association, shows that chronic childhood health issues, including asthma, obesity, behavioural and learning problems, have more than doubled over a 12 year period. Fortunately, most of these health problems are lifestyle related, so parents can improve their child’s wellbeing by changing their diet and engaging their child in a regular exercise program. The activities in this e-book provide parents with information and resources to support their child’s health and wellbeing.
A child’s diet and exercise play crucial roles in their physical, social and mental wellbeing. Do your children understand what a healthy diet includes and how to make a healthy snack? Are your children exercising regularly or do they spend most of their day sedentary in front of some kind of technology like a phone, tablet, computer or other electronic device?
Educating children about the impact of an unhealthy lifestyle on their wellbeing and empowering them with the knowledge and skills to eat well and exercise regularly is so important for good health. This will not only have a positive impact in their childhood but provides a strong platform for great health in adulthood as well.
We all know that people function more efficiently and effectively in a clean and tidy environment. This is true for our children as well. The Health and Wellbeing life skill activities in this program will help your child to understand and develop skills around personal, school and home tidiness and cleanliness as well as education in relation to exercise and nutrition.
