Children should be supported and encouraged to lead a healthy lifestyle, with a balanced diet and sufficient levels of social interaction and exercise.

Children also need to be provided with the correct nutrients and foods in order to grow and develop properly. Without the correct vitamins, minerals and nutrients which children obtain from a varied and balanced diet, they can be prone to illness and health problems. With child obesity currently on the increase the importance of a healthy and balanced diet for youngsters is vital. For more see Healthy Eating.

With more and more children spending time on internet sites and chatting via forums, instant messaging and e-mails, parents and carers need to educate their child on the importance of Internet Safety. Parent's should also ensure they encourage their child to meet up with friends and spend quality time together offline! Children learn skills through games and experiences that cannot be learnt through distant online communication. It is beneficial if parents and carers provide opportunities for their children to meet up with friends and with younger children, parents can invite friends over for tea and to play. Children need to be able to form real friendships with one another, interact and share real life experiences. For more suggestions see Social Skills and Starting School.

Children of all ages as well as adults need to set aside time for regularly exercise, starting from a young age through perhaps learning to Ride a Bike or learning to swim. Children need to build up their physical skills and coordination in order to stay healthy and well. You may decide to go swimming with your child every week, give them riding lessons, let them join the local rugby or football club or encourage them to take up another sport such as tennis, badminton, golf, archery, ballet, hockey, gymnastics etc. Physical sports and activities also help maintain a positive and healthy state of mind.

Teaching your child about caring for the environment is also important in leading a healthy lifestyle. Children need to be aware of how to respect and care for the world in which they live and be introduced to recycling what they use. All sorts of things can now be recycled from your child's art and craft materials to their yoghurt pots and even your old mobile phone!
