After all, we decide what the kids wear - is it too cold for shorts? Too hot for a sweater? Should they wear socks to bed or not?
We decide what the kids eat - more juice, more water, less sugar, less sweets. More veggies, less pasta, vitamins or supplements, the options are endless and often what we do is never enough...
We decide what medicine the kids take - do they need inhalation? More antibiotics? Is their temperature high enough to warrant Tylenol or should I let the body fight the infection? When do we go to the clinic/doctor?
So many decisions made every day, often leave me feeling unequipped and unprepared, always feeling I could be doing something more...

Here are a few of my health goals for the next few weeks (mostly taken from this article here)
- fresh orange juice and other home-made fruit and veggie juices
- ground almonds onto their evening meal
- cod liver oil (since we're not really a fish-eating family)
- season steamed veggies with fresh garlic
Also found a great article with immune-boosting foods here - so we'll be trying to eat a lot more of those vegetables and foods.
How do you keep your kids healthy?
