- ** EDUCATE YOUR KIDS ** My son is conscious of his weight, not that he is overweight in any way BUT society, pressure from his peers, social media etc ALL put expectations on how we should and should not look.
To that end he tends to eat very well 90% of the time, but he is a kid, and kids should NOT be made to feel obsessed about food, EVER
Even if they are currently overweight they need to be helped in a non intrusive and positive way. Most adults have some form of eating disorder, hence why most are overweight, but kids need to be shielded from this for as long as possible.
SO, if your child is overweight, and you want to help them, do the following: ✅ STOP talking openly in the house, constantly, about needing to be ON a diet, and losing weight ✅ STOP demonising foods in front of them, saying this is bad or fattening etc. Instead refer to foods as higher energy or lower energy ✅ Explain that sometimes we need higher energy foods, days that we are active etc but that on other days that higher energy food is not needed and if we eat it then THAT is when the body stores it ✅ Instead of trying to remove certain foods from their diet focus instead on putting better foods IN. Allow them to have some fruit half an hour before Thierry evening meal, to help stunt their hunger so they eat less at the main meal ✅ Change your post meal routine. If they are normally asking for a dessert or pudding after each meal time (a mouse, bit of chocolate etc) then stop sitting at the table. Soon as you are finished get up and walk for 15 minutes etc, OR explain that 30 minutes needs to pass before they then have a dessert. ✅ Don’t take things away from them with a blanket fashion, doing so will simply make themn want it more, instead focus on explaining WHEN the right time is to eat certain foods, so they become empowered and in control. “Mum I really want some chocolate” “OK dude, let’s go get a 20 minute walk/10 minutes WiiFit, whatever, done, so we can earn it” 💡💡 I would welcome hearing ideas from anyone who manages to assist their kids with weight control and food choice issues, but remember, your job as a parent is to EDUCATE THEM.

- "When should children 1st visit the dentist?"
I am always asked this by confused parents. I feel the earlier a baby attends the dentist, the sooner the dentist can discuss good preventative habits with the parents. NHS UK recommend visiting the dentist as soon as you see the first tooth coming into the mouth. By the age of 1 years, all children should have been to the dentist. 🦷 Don't delay, discuss your baby's dental health with your dentist by the age of 1. 🦷
