Where every person seems extremely bothered about health and nutrition? Where adults have a number of options to get their health and nutrition right, but what about kids? Their health and nutrition are of great importance as well, but as they can’t take care of these things on their own, therefore, parents have to intervene and ensure that the food eaten by kids are rich in all sorts of nutrients. Parents have to check what type of food their kids are eating in their day-to-day lives. There are a number of other aspects that parents have to consider in order to ensure healthy habits and great fitness levels in kids.

Importance of fitness

Well, there is no need to debate the importance of fitness, therefore parents need to motivate their kids to have a healthy and active living. Encourage children to play outside sports because that will ensure overall physical development. It is not just the duty of the parents, but the responsibility should be shared equally by the daycares in Newmarket. Kids don’t just eat food at home, but their lunch has been prepared in the daycare centres, therefore, the authorities at daycare centres are equally responsible for ensuring fitness in the kids. Besides food, it is the number of physical activities performed by the kids that leads to a proper fitness level.

How kids can attain an ideal fitness level?

Make kids comfortable

The first thing that parents need to do is to make their kids comfortable performing physical activities. The attire should be according to the occasion, i.e., loose-fitted clothes because only then, the physical activities can be performed in the right manner. There is no need to wear shoes because when kids are barefooted, then they are able to develop a great sense of touch, which is really important for them.

Keep kids excited

Parents can also use different kinds of toys to relax their children and divert their attention to the desired movements, which are required at that time. Parents need to understand that they are the role model for their children, therefore parents have to stay active and excited throughout the time when they indulge in physical activities. It doesn’t matter if the activities are related to throwing the ball, playing a small game or simple stretching, kids should see a high level of commitment in their parents. This is going to motivate them and do better.

Try new activities

There isn’t any formula to attain fitness, therefore, parents have to educate their children to try different things and explore new activities, which they feel would help them stay fit. Some kids get proactively involved in physical activities, whereas some remain hesitant and take some time to get motivated. Parents have to keep in mind that they should cheer their child when he/she is doing well, but at the same time, they should also know when to stop cheering because kids also get tired, but if parents keep on cheering them, then they will continue to perform the physical activity and hence, get severe health problems. Moreover, overperforming a particular activity can create a disliking in kids and they won’t consider it in the future.

Listen to kids

It doesn’t matter if the kids are performing physical activities at home or in the Newmarket daycare centre, it is important for the supervisor (can be parents or the daycarers) to listen to the kids and find out, which activity or activities they want to perform. The most important thing for both, parents and daycarers is to encourage children because only then, they can take part in the physical activities on a daily basis. Most kids like to play activities, which involve running, but some kids prefer activities like meditation and Yoga. There is no issue in performing such activities, as each and every activity has its own benefits. There is no need to compare the activities performed by one child to the other. The main motive of performing physical activities is to ensure fitness in kids.
