Back-to-School Health Tips

Back-to-School Health Tips

As an adult, when you go back to work after a vacation, you need more than a proper diet to handle all the demands that are suddenly on your plate again. You need to ramp up your anti-stress efforts, time management skills, and re-learn to juggle a busy schedule. The same thing goes for your kids. After summer vacation, they're flooded with school, homework, peer pressure, sports activities, friends, teachers, etc. Being on The Hallelujah Diet will definitely give them an advantage for proper physical and neurological function — and healthy snacks help, too. Incidentally, we've just received our first truckload of our all-new Hallelujah Acres Snack Bars, just in time for school! They're the perfect combination of chewy, crispy texture and delicious flavor! Get yours here before they're gone! But hey, who says you have to get them for the kids? You may want to "taste test" them for yourself. You know, just to make sure they're kid-friendly (if you decide to tell the kids you bought them, that is). :) But getting back to our point... food isn't everything. The Hallelujah Diet is a lifestyle designed for whole body health. To help your kids cope aside from a good diet, remember these guidelines of The Hallelujah Diet that are not always in the limelight:
  • Sunshine: Make sure kids get at least 15 minutes of sunshine daily or take a vitamin D3 supplement. Vitamin D3 is essential for the absorption of calcium and phosphorus and is important for normal development of bones and teeth.
  • Exercise: Exercise fights fatigue, strengthens and nourishes the heart, strengthens bones, improves circulation, boosts red blood cells, and facilitates oxygen. On the flipside, a sedentary lifestyle can result in numerous different physical problems.
  • Sleep: Without adequate rest, the brain's ability to function quickly deteriorates. The brain works harder to counteract sleep deprivation effects, concentration levels drop, and memory becomes impaired. Kids aged 3-6 need 10 to 12 hours of sleep per night, kids aged 6-9 need about 10 hours, and teens need about 9 hours.
  • Hydration: Daily vegetable juices and BarleyMax do wonders to feed the body and mind, and water itself is an excellent solvent. It is of vital importance to keep the body well hydrated to maintain the body’s systems in check. Make sure plastic water containers are BPA-free.
Of course, the best way to teach these things to your children is to lead by example. What's your kid's favorite back-to-school snack? Scroll below the related articles to comment!
