GOOD HEALTH IN A BOTTLE

Good habits learned young can have life-long benefits. Here’s how to set up your kids

When it comes to your children’s health, there are three key areas to get right early on: diet, sleep and exercise; plus, specific immunisations. Nutrition is vital to development, and overeating is a huge issue – large kids usually become large adults, increasing risk of type 2 diabetes, heart disease, stroke, some cancers and arthritis. Instilling healthy habits provides them with the best chance to grow into fit adults.

BIRTH TO FOUR YEARS

We think babies eat till they’re full, but they are prone to overeating. Check they’re comfortable before offering a bottle, and provide a range of foods from weaning onwards – especially fruit and vegetables. Fussy eating can start before school age. Remember, kids don’t know foods taste different made in different ways; so mix up your menu, don’t cut certain foods out. No one hates all vegetables! Avoid rewards; it links emotions to food, potentially causing comfort eating.
