A healthy child , healthy home !

It is often said that raising a child is the hardest, most responsible and often the most satisfying task a parent can face. 
A persons knowledge of how to bring up their children usually comes from their surroundings and their own upbringing. This may result in patterns from the parent's own social experiences being repeated and passed on to their children.
“Our children are our happiness” is what my mom used to tell her friends when I was in school.
You too must’ve heard this more often than you can admit , a parent always considers her happy kids their reason behind their healthy and happy home.
my parents where always health-conscious parents , they did everything  to compete against any number of unhealthy temptations and made sure we did not hook up to bad habits like smoking and intake of any other harmful substance.
My parents always believed that if a child is healthy and happy , it automatically makes the home a healthy home.They abided by five rules for healthy eating:
  • No to fast food . They were strictly against it. And I am so very thankful to them for this gift of health and good habits they instilled in me.
  • Intake of Dabur Chyawanprash ( Dabur Chyawanprash is a time-tested, age-old formulation has a number of herbs like Amla, known to be one of the best antioxidants, Giloy (Guduchi))regularly. Growing up is hard work, and my parents where very much aware of this , child has a special set of requirements to get the job done..They would tell me you are growing and developing you must eat dabur so all your body parts from your brain to your  bones grow strong.
  • They involved is in eating healthy fruits and veggies .
  • Physical activity a part of our daily lives
  • They Kept it simple.
-My mom and dad played a key role in our food choices and the behaviors I and my siblings picked up as we grew older.
-They made sure that we followed a set of important things so we could grow up to safe, happy and healthy. They made sure we had a healthy lifestyle and the set of rules included:
- They always made our food fun, my mom would innovate different types of foods with healthy nutritious food.
- they made sure we never skipped our dinner as dinner was a very important meal for our immune system.
-They made us eat different foods every day, they believed variety is the recipe for health, which I belief in too.
-we had fruits with every meal
- they made us stay active in all our holidays
