To help you get the most out of summer, here are 10 tips for your kids to follow.

Top Ten Summer Healthy Tips For Kids

  1. Never skip breakfast. Breakfast is the most important meal of the entire day. Make sure to eat nutritious foods that support your physical activity for the day as well as for bone, muscle, & brain growth; like a bowl of oatmeal, with fresh fruit & almonds, along with some scrambled eggs and a cold glass of milk.
  2. Eat plenty of fresh fruits & vegetables daily. Make sure ½ of your plate is filled with fruits and veggies with each important meal (breakfast, lunch, dinner).
  3. Always stay hydrated. Replace sugary sports drinks & sodas with water; add slices of fresh fruit like strawberries, lemons, limes or watermelons to your water for a delicious flavor. Staying hydrated prevents heat related illness: symptoms are headache, cold sweats, exhaustion, nausea and/or vomiting, and diarrhea.
  4. Wear sunscreen. Apply sunscreen about every 2-3 hours and more often when in or around water.
  5. Wear sunglasses. Wearing sunglasses blocks up to 99% of UV rays which can easily damage the eye because of sunburn.
  6. Get plenty of rest. During the hot summer heat, making sure you get plenty of rest is important to prevent heat exhaustion while playing outside, take frequent shaded breaks. Getting 8-10 hours of sleep every night is important for recuperation and growth.
  7. Good oral hygiene. Make sure to brush your teeth every morning and every night before bedtime. Seeing a dentist every 6 months is imperative in order to prevent major dental issues. Poor dental hygiene causes other health problems, mainly with digestion.
  8. Stay Active! Find activities you enjoy; like riding your bike, swimming, playing sports with your friends; a minimum of 60 minutes of daily physical activity is recommended for all children.
  9. Wear safety gear. When riding your bike, skateboarding, roller skating or blading always make sure to wear a helmet, elbow & shin guards and appropriate close toed shoes.
  10. R.I.C.E. If you experience an injury from being physically active make sure you get enough REST, apply ICE and COMPRESSION to the injured site, and keep the injured area ELEVATED.

As school ends for the summer, we look back on the past year we’ve had with our lovely Kids on Wheels and Seniors on Wheels family. We had a good year serving the Durham community, and took some time at the end of June to celebrate our wonderful drivers that help our service run smoothly. Thank you to everyone that helps make Kids on Wheels and Seniors on Wheels so successful and amazing!

Although the school year is over, the summer has just begun, and we continue full steam ahead, driving our kids to summer camps and activities, and our seniors to wherever they need to go. We are also preparing for the new school year, and are accepting applications for September. We look forward to a great summer, and another year of outstanding service to you and your families.

 I thought I’d just say a bit about the actual history of the celebration of love. Throughout history, there have been variations of celebrations of love, but they didn’t always take on the innocuous form that modern-day marketing departments have dreamed up. Here in Switzerland, 14 February is […]
