No one knows the child better than their parents, even today. The first one to get information about the student is their parents. So, collaborating with them is important so that they can also support and teach their child. Involve parents in promoting healthy habits in their child is comprehensive and enhances communication. Share information on healthy recipes, physical activity ideas, and tips for maintaining a healthy lifestyle. We at MyHealthyGenie organize workshops or parent engagement sessions on nutrition, cooking, and promoting physical activity at home. If we find some serious health issues with the student, we contact their parents and guide them in these kinds of panic situations.
ESTABLISH A HEALTHY SCHOOL ENVIRONMENT
It is important to keep an eye on the school to maintain a healthy environment that keeps supporting the well-being of the students. Students spend a considerable amount of time in school, so the school should have healthy and enjoyable surroundings. The school canteen should offer wholesome meals, provide clean drinking tap water, and promote hygienic practices by maintaining clean and well-equipped washrooms in order to promote a healthy lifestyle. Encourage students to participate in creating a clean and green campus through initiatives like gardening and waste management programs.
