Infants raised on breast milk tend to score higher on tests of mental development than those on formula ||Your toddler may be clumsy simply due to her trials to master so many new physical skills at the same time. The more active she is, the more likely she will drop things, run into things, or fall down. ||Don’t rush into solving your kid's problems. Give him the chance to conclude, all on his own, that things are going to be okay. ||Expressing milk should be painless. If it hurts, stop. ||Never tie a pacifier to your child’s crib or around your child’s neck or hand. This could cause serious injury or even death ||Don't allow your pet on the couch while you are holding baby. This makes dogs bigger and taller in relation to your infant and may encourage aggression. ||For protecting young children during summer months, apply sunscreen at least 30 minutes before going outside ||Don't let your baby nap in the car seat after you're home as a substitute for crib since it's harder for young babies to breathe in that position ||AAP recommends to avoid blankets (a potential suffocation hazard) until your baby reaches her first birthday ||Plan for regular family meals.

Seven healthy eating tips for kids

 

  1. You decide which foods to buy and when to serve them. Adults should be in charge when deciding which foods are regularly stocked in the house. When hungry, kids will eat what's available at home. This can also give some freedom for kids to choose what they will eat.
  2. Limit portion sizes. Don’t insist your child cleans the plate, and never use food as a reward or bribe. When food is used to reward kids, they may start using food to cope with stress or other emotions.
  3. Variety is the recipe for health. Offer variety starting at an early age. Likes and dislikes are developed early in life. Serve new foods with favorite foods to increase acceptance.
  4. Limit beverages. Soda and other sweetened drinks add extra calories and get in the way of good nutrition. Water and milk are the best drinks for kids. Juice is fine when it's 100%, but kids don't need much of it, 120 – 180 ml a day is enough for preschoolers.
  5. Try to stay neutral about foods. When dessert is the prize for eating dinner, kids naturally place more value on the cake than the vegetables.
  6. Be a role model and eat healthy yourself. Choose nutritious snacks, eat at the table, and don't skip breakfast.
  7. Limit TV and computer time. Limiting "screen time" means you'll have more time to be active together and avoid mindless snacking.
