HEALTHY HABITS WORKSHOP – Small steps in the right direction
Our clinic has always been committed to helping children, parents and families achieve a healthy lifestyle now and for the future. Healthy habits in each individual ripple out to those around us.
A well child visit is a great time to track your child’s growth and development. Find out if your child is as healthy as they should be and what you can do about it.
Want to get your kids to eat more veggies? Drink more water? Sleep earlier? Spend less time in front of a screen? Let us help you guide your children towards healthier habits starting this school term. Get more control over your family’s health with strategies your kids will enjoy & without the usual stress & arguments
We are running a healthy habits workshop for children aged 2-10 this school term. A follow up workshop will be conducted a few weeks later to see how your family is doing and for further tips on keeping up new habits.
The components of a healthy lifestyle include:
- Good nutrition
- Regular exercise
- Good sleep hygiene
- Healthy emotional growth
- Social engagement
Grandparents, childcare and friends & family play an important part in developing healthy habits in your children. Learn tips to involve these people in your life to build healthier habits in your children; nurturing children is a family focussed task.
Health related habits start in childhood and are influenced by daily family routines. This workshop is aimed at helping our young families develop healthy habits from an early age. Unhelpful habits from early childhood are difficult to reverse later in life when health problems start to appear. Childhood obesity is on the rise. Many families are at risk of obesity, diabetes and heart disease at a younger age.
Your family’s health is important and lifestyle habits start early in life. These healthy habits are especially important if during the pregnancy, mum had:
- Gestational Diabetes (sugar problems)
- iron deficiency
- pre-eclampsia (high blood pressure)
- or if your child weighed more than 4kg at birth
