The winners are…(winners will be contacted by email to claim their prizes)


Christine


We all get lots of exercise/physical activity. I try to make healthy choices for my body and mind and love myself in the hope that my daughters will see that and love themselves, too.


Rachel


The biggest thing I do to keep my kiddo healthy is to be a good example of healthy habits. Monkey see, monkey do, right? I try to eat right and stay active and since he eats what I eat and comes along with me for all of my activities (because he’s still a baby), hopefully, he’ll grow up to see those habits as a normal part of his daily life. I also breastfeed and will until he weans himself, and make sure we have lots of fresh veggies and fruit on hand for meals and snacks… basically every decision I make is for the health and well-being of my kid. From where I live to where I shop to what I do with my own free time…


Cara


We make homemade yogurt, sweetened with stevia, to keep everyone healthy We also just recently switched to cooking with coconut oil, and I love it!


Charlotte


Having 4 stepkids and 2 year old daughter, encouraging healthy habits is a must in order to prevent the plague of the month entering and destroying our household (LOL!). Handwashing with sweet smelling castille soaps whenever using the bathroom and before every meal; we try to make each dish colorful like the rainbow — raw veggie salads must be eaten first; we take vitamin C supplements; and soak our toothbrushes in grapefruit seed extract at least once every couple of weeks. Finally, we are so fortunate to live in a beautiful place so we take lots of family hikes, for example, this morning we hiked to some blackberries and chowed down before breakfast. xo

I breastfeed to keep her healthy!
I breasefed her for 2 1/2 years and make sure she eats well-balanced and healthy meals. We also wash hands with soap and water thoroughly several times/day. In the Summer, she gets plant of fresh air and sunshine. In the Winter months, I make sure to give her vitamin D3 to help with cold/flu prevention.
Breastfeeding the little one and lots of physical activity outdoors for the 5 year old.
We have a garden in the backyard so I know he's getting plenty of fresh, pesticide-free fruits & vegetables.
We eat organic foods!

Breastfeeding is probably the "biggest" thing I do to keep my kids healthy.
I breastfed my daughter until she was 2 1/2, we eat an organic and vegetarian diet, I delayed immunizations until after she turned 3, and we have an organic backyard garden that she loves. Okay, that's four, but I don't know which tip I would say stands out more than the others...
I give my kids a whole foods multivitamin and vitamin c with their gluten free, casein free healthy breakfast. I insist they eat plenty of fruits and veggies, we buy little to no processed foods and I teach them about real nutrition. They have very limited screen time and plenty of fresh air and exercise. We read and let them have as many books as they want.

I have an 8yr old and a 3 mo old. Time outdoors is a must! We spend time outdoors each and everyday. For the oldest, she is super active and exercises enough for our entire family, but tends to be a very picky eater. The introduction to new foods is routine... hoping she will find a new found favorite veggie or fruit. Additionally, we, minus the baby, take daily multivitamins. For the baby - Just as many others have mentioned, I breastfeed her - which is THE healthiest for her until it no longer works for us. She gains the nutrients she needs and she gains the Vit. D from the time we spend outdoors. We do what works for us - We are constantly trying new things - some we keep, some we discard :)
Food wise: I love having my children shop and cook with me....we do a lot of taste testing ;-) I feel it's also just as important to have family meals together as much as possible. Lifestyle wise: Play, play, play!!!
lately: sunshine and yogurt :-)
No processed foods and a daily dose of sunshine and dirt!
I breastfed my son till he was just a little over 3 years old. I think that has played a huge part in his good health. And I've always taught him good hygene habits.
Avoid shopping with little ones, and if you do WEAR YOUR BABIES! (Talking about the shopping carts that hold all those lovely viruses.)
I am breastfeeding my 2 month old and dreading the coming decisions about vaccinations. So I hand wash, breastfeed with love <3; and I take immune support herbs like echinacea when I am feeling run down or exposed to sickness.
Breastfeeding is my one major tip! Still BF'ing my almost 3-year-old (and my 3 month-old) and he rarely gets sick. My daughter self-weaned at 19 months when I was pregnant but she still rarely gets sick at 4 years-old We also walk on the beach every day, so they get plenty of sunshine and exercise.
Breastfeeding, fresh air, gardening with mama and best of all lots of laughter!!!
