Drink plenty of water

Eat a healthy breakfast

More often than not kids are dragged out of bed, shoved into clothes and tossed onto a school bus before seven am.  When they get to school they go through two or three classes before getting a break or lunch.  This is not a healthy way to live.  When getting up your children will need a healthy breakfast.  Oatmeal, corn flakes, eggs, milk, juice and toast are all good choices.  Stay away from the sugar and artificial junk. 

Eat more vegetables and fruit

With every meal you need to have a vegetable and or a fruit.  When we eat vegetables they help to speed up our metabolism.  Starchy foods such as potatoes and pasta are okay but they don’t ignite the fat burning engine like fruits and vegetables do naturally. 

Combining these tips and tricks along with walking and physical exercise will start to rebuild our children and adults as well.  Do your best to keep the children healthy, wealthy and wise.  They will benefit from it later.
