Why celebrate Children’s Day?

  • In India, every year, November 14this celebrated as Children’s Day and is also the birthday of India’s first Prime Minister, Jawaharlal Nehru, also known as Chachaji. As a tribute to him and his love for children, this day is celebrated as Children’s Day.  He worked passionately towards the welfare of children and was keen on the education and development of children in India.

Tips For Healthy Children

  • They should get proper care and love from the parents and family.
  • Start the day with a healthy breakfast. It refuels the body and provides energy for the day.
  • Let kids help plan and prepare 1 meal each week.
  • Eat together as a family as often as possible.
  • Take time eating, and chew slowly. It takes 20 minutes for the brain to tell the body that you are full.
  • Eat more vegetables and fresh fruits. Aim for a total of 2 cups of fruit and 2 1/2 cups of vegetables each day.
  • Eat more whole grains. Examples include oats, brown rice, rye, and whole-wheat pasta. Try to eat at least 3 ounces of whole grains each day.
  • Drink plenty of fluids. Choose water, low-fat or nonfat milk, and low-calorie beverages.
  • Serve a variety of foods.
  • Serve food in small portions.
  • They should get healthy food, clean clothes and security.
  • They should get a healthy living environment where they can feel safe at home, school or another place.
  • They should get the proper and good level of education.
  • They should be provided special care when disabled or sick.

Let us join our hands together and take a pledge to secure the present and future of the country’s leaders to make a beautiful nation.
