When my boys were little, I used to compare them (unkindly maybe) with puppies. Providing they had plenty of affection and were allowed to run around a lot outside, they were happy. Preschoolers are natural little whirlwinds of energy and need masses of exercise. Physical activity keeps little ones fit, healthy and strong, helps them relax and sleep better and is FUN!
I’m sure many would say that I got it lucky. I have a child who eats vegetables. Actually, not just eats them but asks for them!
Many times I have been asked the question ‘how do you get your child to eat vegetables?', a question quickly followed by the ‘you’re so lucky you got one like that’ statement.
