It's now just 10 days until 'the big day' - the day all kids look forward to every year! It can often be a very busy time of year for parents though, with weekends and evenings filled with social engagements. There's always lots of eating (and drinking) and it can be hard to keep on track with a healthy diet. In this blog, Kelly from Early Health gives us some tips for keeping kids healthy over the festive season.
The festive season is my favourite time of the year, catching up with family and friends over indulgent treats is one holiday activity that I always look forward to. However, between the events and treats of the Christmas season it is still important to maintain some healthy eating and exercise habits, your new year self will thank you for it. Maintaining a healthy balance is also essential for children, with underdeveloped detoxification pathways, nervous systems sensitive to sugar, food additives and late nights children need to have their health nurtured during the Christmas period. Here are my top 5 tips to keep the balance tipping towards health for your children this Christmas.
Merry Christmas from Early Health!

Strawberry season has been in full swing over the past month in Perth, with an abundance of delicious strawberries everywhere you look! We bought a big box of them from a local farmer's market, so I thought I'd whip up a simple bliss ball recipe to make use of some of the strawberries.
Ah meal time with kids! A time that can be either enjoyable or stressful as you try and get them to eat more, or eat their veggies, or at least try the dinner you just spent an hour making for them! We’ve all been there, so here are a few simple tips to make meal time a little more fun – and hopefully encourage them to eat more (or a wider variety) in the process.
