“95% of everything you do is the result of habit.” – Aristotle

Quite true! And, if habits have a bearing on all that we do, it is essential to develop good ones. When it comes to your children’s health, especially, you need to inculcate healthy habits at a young age itself. This will go a long way in ensuring that they experience good health all their lives.

Flip through the pages of the ClipBook to find out more about the 6 healthy habits you should inculcate in your child that will create an impact on his personality and well-being.
