When kids keep physically active, they realize many more benefits than just improved fitness. Other health rewards are:
Kids should combine vigorous-intensity activities as well as activities that stimulate muscle and bone. Some of the simplest ideas are

The Fun Stuff!
We all know how difficult it can be to get kids in the habit of washing up – but bath time doesn’t always have to be a chore! It is important to teach your children about the importance of personal hygiene, so why not make it a fun part of their daily routine?
Try incorporating music into your child’s personal care routine. Many of their favourite songs can be used as a guide for how long it should take them to wash up. Singing the alphabet twice is a great way to ensure that a child is brushing their teeth thoroughly (just make sure to sing in your head while you brush!). Don’t forget to remind them that all of their teeth need brushing, even the ones way in the back! You can also sing “Happy Birthday” out loud while washing hands (for about 30 seconds) to make sure they’re squeaky clean. Another favourite song is “Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes”, which is perfect for bath time. As you sing together, have your child wash each body part mentioned.

Natural ingredients are important
Did you know that children can absorb up to 200% more substances through their skin than adults? (Princeton Journal – Future of Children). Many bath products currently on the market for children can contain suspect ingredients.
The Campaign for Safe Cosmetics ran a study to evaluate popular children’s bath products for Formaldehyde and 1,4-Dioxane (probable cancer causing agents). 82% of them contained Formaldehyde, 67% contained 1,4-Dioxane and 61% contained both! These particular ingredients probably won’t show up in a products ingredient listing because they’re byproducts of other ingredient manufacturing (like Sodium Laureth Sulphate or PEGs). However it is still very important to read ingredient labels and choose products that use natural, safe, gentle ingredients.
At Nature Clean® we have families too! It was important for us to introduce a line of natural, gentle personal care products for kids that are safe for delicate skin and that they’ll love to use!
That’s why we are so proud of the Treehouse™ children’s personal care line by Nature Clean®!
These pure and safe bath time products for kids not only offer the natural trusted formulations you’d expect from Nature Clean®, but they are also very mild and are gentle enough for babies. These 99.5% natural formulas are derived from plant and mineral sources. Additionally, the entire line has been created without ingredients such as sodium lauryl sulphate (SLS), sodium lauryl ether sulphate/sodium laureth sulphate (SLES), propylene glycol (PEG), parabens, petroleum ingredients, synthetic perfumes, and dyes.
The line is not only natural and gentle, but fun too! The packaging features children’s favorite characters and uses natural fruit flavorings for great fruity scents to help encourage kids that bath time can be as fun as playing outside in the mud… we think it could happen! With easy to use flip caps and pumps, kids can wash their hands, clean their hair, brush their teeth, and take a bath all by themselves (please note that children should never be left in a bath alone – adult supervision is always required).
The line includes 2in1 Shampoo, Body Wash, Bubble Bath, Toothpaste, Foaming Hand Soap and more! Click here to learn more.
The key to making personal hygiene fun for your child is to encourage them to be independent when washing up and to avoid making it a chore. With kid-friendly products and a positive attitude, getting clean can be fun for all the members of your family!
