When foods are used to reward kids and show affection, they may start using food to cope with stress or other emotions. Instead of food treats, offer them hugs, praises, attention, or some quality time together.
Giving kids a lot of physical activities also helps to promote a healthy lifestyle, instead of a sedentary one spent in front of a television or gadget. It can be as simple as letting your child play outdoors with your neighbor's kids.
Teaching children good habits is important when it comes to financial health as well. For instance, teaching them how to save and spend wisely are lessons that will serve them well when they grow up. Having an insurance plan that rewards a healthy lifestyle makes it easier to maintain one. BPI AIA health and wellness initiaitives and offers incentives, allowing its members to earn points by doing healthy activities. The more points, the higher rewards you get.
To start earning points, the first step is to undergo health reviews and check-ups to assess your state of health. Then, set personal health goals such as establishing a healthy and balanced diet, scheduling physical activities, and learning to avoid unhealthy habits. Achieving your health goals earns you AIA Vitality points, which entitles you to additional insurance coverage and preferential rates with partner establishments. Of course, having a healthy lifestyle, sets a good example to your child, and being physically able to care for him/her, are already rewards in themselves.
