Healthy Kids

Part 1

 

As parents, we all want to have healthy kids and that seems to be getting more and more difficult these days. As parents, we need to learn to be an advocate for our kids- ask questions, educate ourselves and trust our gut.

 

+ Nutrition

Healthy children and family start with what we are putting in our bodies. The statistics that are out there are not only alarming but they didn’t happen overnight. Our genes, our genetics, they don’t change that quickly. It is something that we are being exposed to and something that our children are being exposed to.

The saying that you are what you eat rings true. Much of our diet lacks proper nutrition and more people are becoming aware of it. Dr. Weston Price did some fascinating studies on the difference between the “townies” and the “country folk.” The difference in their food and nutrition was obvious in not only their health but their overall appearance.

Good fats, fermented foods and food high in essential minerals are crucial to our overall health and in turn our children’s health as well.

 

+ Happy Microbiome

Our diet needs to feed us and not the possible passengers that we are carrying- parasites, candida, and fungus are the 3 most common. Our gut biome is crucial to our immune system and can be affected by many things including stress and sugar.

One key is to be using prebiotic and probiotic. This helps to feed the good bacteria and continue to increase the number of good bacteria that are there. MightyPro is an amazing supplement for kids and adults, grab yours here!

As always, be grateful & have faith!

God Bless!
