It's not uncommon or obsessive to be a litte more mindful over our children's mental and physical welfare recently. While parents may be a tad more careful in keeping their their children healthy, happy and also safe amidst the covid-19 restrictions, here are some simple tips to consider:
Children can reap multiple benefits when they play outdoors, including a reduced risk of myopia, lower stress levels, better moods, and improved concentration, and opportunities to learn social skills and develop a connection with nature. Adequate sun exposure can also boost vitamin D levels, which is important for bone health. Singapore has many interesting outdoor playgrounds, some worth checking our are the Como Adventure Grove and the new Coastal PlayGrove at East Coast Park.
Healthy eating means eating a variety of foods so that your child gets the nutrients he or she needs for normal growth. If your child regularly eats a wide variety of basic foods, he or she will be well-nourished. Try supplementing with StrongKids series for picky eaters.
Your child’s brain needs sleep to restore resources that were used up during the day. A well-rested brain can solve problems, learn new information and enjoy the day a lot more than a tired brain. Some areas of your child’s brain are even more active while they sleep.
Children who consistently get a good night’s sleep:
- are more creative
- can concentrate on tasks for longer
- have better problem-solving abilities
- are better able to make positive decisions
- are more able to learn and remember new things
