At school, children spend a lot of time in classrooms where they can easily transfer infections to one another. But by teaching kids some important healthy habits, parents can help make school and health a priority during the school year. Here are some great tips on how to keep your kids healthy.


Teach Your Child About Proper Hand Washing

Hand washing is one of the most important ways we can prevent the spread of illness in the classroom and elsewhere. By teaching your child how to wash her hands properly – and to especially wash after blowing her nose, using the bathroom and before eating – you can help her reduce the risk of getting sick, and keep her from infecting others if she catches an infection or illness.

Boost Your Family's Immune System Health

Keeping your child's immune system strong is an important way to stay healthy and ward off illness during the school year. Getting enough sleep, maintaining a healthy diet, managing stress, exercising, making time to laugh, and emphasizing hand washing can help reduce your child's risk of getting colds, flu, and other infections.

Teach Your Child Healthy Habits to Prevent Cold and Flu

Does your child know the important healthy habits to prevent colds, flu, and other infections? Healthy habits such as remembering not to keep touching his eyes or refraining from sharing cups and utensils with friends are important to learn.

Set Good Sleep Habits

Making sure your child gets enough sleep is a crucial part of keeping her healthy. Sleep is important not only for a child's physical and emotional health but it can play an important role in how well she does in school, too.

Be on the Lookout for Anxiety or Stress in Your Child

Homework, tests, social pressures – kids can face a lot of stressful situations every day. Research shows that stress and anxiety can have a negative impact on kids' health, just like it can on the health of adults. Find out how to spot the symptoms of stress in your child and find ways to manage his anxiety.

Give Your Child a Brain-Boosting Healthy Breakfast

Breakfast really is the most important meal of the day when it comes to school kids. A balanced breakfast of low-fat protein and complex carbohydrates has been shown to be important for brain function as well as for maintaining a steady level of energy throughout the day.

Make Kids' School Lunch Boxes Fun

Make healthy lunches more fun and enticing with these ideas for yummy main dishes and sides dressed up in colorful combinations and shapes. There's even a suggestion for a healthy Asian bento lunch box.

Give Your Child Healthy After-School Snacks

Kids are often ravenous after school. But you don't have to sacrifice good nutrition for convenience with these ideas for quick, easy, and healthy after-school snacks.

Learn About Head Lice Prevention, Symptoms, and Treatment

As much as we don't want to think about head lice, the fact is that it's a common problem among school-age kids. Children are in close contact at school and more likely to share blankets or other personal items. Learn the facts and myths about head lice and how to help your kids steer clear of this annoying yet common problem at school.

Forgotten parsnip...

Nowadays parsnip has been forgotten by many of us, despite it used to be a very popular vegetable. It's sweetness makes it a perfect main ingredient for soups and pures! Because it's rich in many vitamins, minerals and significant amount of fibre it should be taken into serious consideration when planning your menu during the autumn/ winter season. Especially because it contains a lot of vit C.

Make a creamy soup out of baked parsnip, with potato and apple. Wash 4 parsnip roots and 1 potato, peel and roughly chop them. Mix them with 1tspn of ghee and 1tspn of coconut sugar or honey. Bake in the oven set to 230'C for 30min. After 15min add peeled apple quarters. When everything is ready move to the pot and add 1l of vegetable stock. Blend all together until smooth. Taste great with a spoon of Greek yoghurt and roasted garlic.
