I’m sure you have all heard about the importance of making healthy lifestyle choices!
Did you know that many chronic diseases can be prevented?
A report posted on the World Health Organisation (WHO) website recently, discussed how the modern way of life has contributed to many noncommunicable diseases (aka chronic diseases).
It went on to say that, these chronic, lifestyle-related diseases i.e. heart disease, stroke, cancer and diabetes have become the deadliest diseases of modern times.
The WHO wants governments to “ensure that children have safe places to play, encourage people to cycle and walk, and address urban “food deserts” that offer abundant junk food but little fresh fruits and vegetables”.
As you may have gathered by now, I am passionate about making a difference to the lives of children with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). What I discovered after reading a lot of research written on the topic of ADHD was that, many lifestyle activities impact the behaviour and learning of children with ADHD.
And that… is why I created the “But why…?” Children’s Book Series.
As you may have gathered by my other blogs, the books cover the important areas of: nutrition, exercise, relaxation, sleep as well as learning, for children with and without ADHD.
The “But why…?” series uses the teddy bear characters, to encourage children to try a variety of healthy lifestyle activities every day!
The choices we make now for our children will have life-long consequences.
So, let’s make great choices for our children now.
They are the future, and they are so worth it!
