Food allergies can be a serious health concern for kids and as parents it is essential that you pay attention to your kids dietary restrictions and treats that they enjoy at home, school and events. 

Although any foods can cause allergic reactions but some popular foods knows to cause allergic reactions are as follows:

  • Shellfish( Shrimps, crab, lobster)
  • Eggs
  • Soy
  • Wheat
  • Milk (all dairy)
  • Peanuts
  • Tree nuts( cashews, walnut, pecans, pistachios, and almond)


Anyone could develop food allergy at anytime and it does not matter if they have eaten the food before several times. For some people the smell of particular foods can be a trigger for the reaction.

It is nice to always think about people who have food allergies when you give out special treats and plan those special events to show them that you sincerely care for their well being and safety. 

Power-Up with good Food

Power -up with god food by Ivrydbook

Know your food label

Choose food and snacks from the five food groups (fruits, vegetables, grains, protein, and dairy) to keep your body healthy and strong. 

Baby carrots(vegetable), berries(fruit), string cheese(dairy), hard-boiled egg(protein), and pita bread(grains) can be great to snack on. We eat snacks between meal times to stop our stomachs from being hungry. Encourage your kids to choose snacks from the food group to build their own creative snack idea. 

Discuss good eating habits as a family and practice reading food labels with your kids to help them understand how they can use nutrition facts to make smart food choices quickly. It will help them become more aware of their food, help them establish good eating habits, and fight childhood obesity.

Kids are fun and have so much energy. They are very active and energetic and can move quickly from one activity to another. Kids get restless if they do not get enough physical activity to burn off their energy. And parenting a kid with lots of energy can be exhausting, even for the teachers at school. So the first rule is if you want kids to roll with you, then whatever you choose to do with their time, activities, games, and all, must be fun. I repeat, it must be fun because kids do not have time for the boring stuff.
Exercise for kids should be fun and active play is a fantastic way to add to your kids’ daily routine fitness. It helps them do better in behavior and academically—there are lots of easy exercises, games, and movements that your kids can enjoy to benefit them.

Something in the name.

Something in the name by Ivrydbook

Little Mike had a friend whose name was Hygienus. His classmates loved his name because they believed it was unique. During the parents-teachers meeting, Mike’s mum asked Hygienus’s dad what inspired him to give his son a beautiful and unique name.
“Why does everyone ask me this exact question?” he said.” As a medical doctor who works in the infectious disease department, I get exposed every day. These exposures can be fatal, risky, and frightening because I go back to my loved ones every day.
It is a nightmare to witness the dangers of neglect that could have been avoided that was brought upon your loved ones because of a careless mistake of not washing your hands after contact with people. For example, I get off work and go straight home without exercising simple due diligence on precautions like washing my hands. I get home, hug my loved ones, and indirectly spread some of these diseases to them. You will never find it in your spirit to forgive yourself.
Actually, my son’s name “Hygenius” is an awareness for me, a reminder that I must always keep my family safe no matter what I do in helping others.”

Food Hygiene

Food hygiene and healthy food choices by Ivrydbook

Healthy food choices and hygiene can help your child grow healthy, prevent food poisoning, and combat diseases. Therefore, it is essential to maintain food hygiene at all times. As a parent, set examples with your grocery list for your kids to follow, wear your gloves and apron to prevent contamination, prepare food, eat food, and maintain a safe meal and eating habit. Teach them the importance of nutritious foods and why they are suitable for them, how to wash their meat, veggies properly, fruits before consuming them, and the benefits of well-cooked food. Please encourage them to try new foods, drinks, and healthy smoothies. And let them prepare meals with you for the family sometimes. 

Dental and Oral Hygiene

“Love means not being afraid to lose my first teeth, smiling after losing my first teeth, and making others smile whenever I smile.” ― Ivrydbook.

Dental hygiene is crucial for your kid’s growth, health, and wellness. You must help your kid establish a proper routine of brushing their teeth at least twice daily.
Have your kid brush their teeth before breakfast to eliminate bacteria collected in the mouth overnight. Have your kid rinse their mouth with water after breakfast and lunch to remove a buildup after eating their meal.
Please encourage them to brush their teeth after dinner as part of a daily routine. And a routine visit to the dentist is essential because it will help your kid prevent gingivitis and gum disease.

My little angel, please do not be afraid to wash your hands.

It can be pretty hard to get kids to do a little simple thing like wash their hands with the activity level they have. And even harder for them spending an extra minute on anything that are not interested in doing.

Gini’s little pretty hands touch everything, from her brother’s gaming device, mom’s mobile phone, daddy’s car keys, toilet seat, desks, floor, picking her nose, digging the dirt on the playground, and touching everything within range. Because you come in contact with germs every minute, it is easy for germs to get into your mouth and get you sick. Wash your hands with soap and water to keep germs from spreading, getting into your mouth, and getting you sick. 

Bath Hygiene

Bath Hygiene by Ivrydbook

Many bacteria live on the skin’s surface harmlessly but can give rise to infections if they find their way into the body through injuries and open cuts, and with kids, anything can happen during playtime. It is even worst for children who are too young to communicate their injuries themselves. Bath times are essential to keep your kids healthy, prevent the spread of germs on their bodies, and ensure a clean and hygienic environment for your child. Regular showers can be fun, and it’s not a bad idea to be creative about it to make it fun for your little angels. However, kids have a lot of indoor play and outside time, and in the process, they get their hands dirty by touching dirty surfaces, running around, sweating, and lying on the floor. Therefore, you must urge your kids to shower first and last thing at night before bedtime. Wash their underarms, anal areas, genitals, hair, and all their body. Examine their skin for injuries, abrasions, blemishes, and rashes. Make sure after bath their body is thoroughly dry before they get dressed.

Cover your mouth while Sneezing or Coughing

Kids may have a solid immune system compared to adults, but a little push in the right direction will go a long way to secure them. First, kids should be taught to cover their mouths while coughing or sneezing to avoid the spread of germs to others. The proper way to do this is to use a handkerchief or tissue to cover their nose and mouth instead of their hands to prevent contamination and spread. In addition, they can use their elbow to cover their nose and mouth when sneezing or coughing. When they use their hands to cover their nose and mouth during a cough or sneeze, encourage them to wash their hands immediately with soap and water as soon as possible. These precautions will help prevent the transfer of these pathogens to others.

Genital Care

Genital Care by Ivrydbook

Wash your kids underarm. Teach them to wear roll-on id they are tweens or teens. It is a rite of passage. Sweat can be good and bad at the same time. Good when it opens up your spores and bad when it becomes body odor which can start at ages 9 – 10 years old. If your kids are at school and engage in sports, give them wipes for their underarm during sports practice and after sports practice before changing their clothes. Every child is different. Some kids may sweet heavily, and others may not. If they are tweens or teens, choose an antiperspirant to add scent while helping minimize sweating and protect them.
