Being a parent can be a challenge at the best of times. Ensuring that your kids are healthy and happy can sometimes feel like an uphill struggle, and sometimes you might wish that there was some handy guides or tools to see you through.
Well, that's why we have decided to take a look at 5 health products, designed with kids in mind, but actually for the benefit of you, the parent.
Taking your child's temperature can be tricky for some, so this is why an app has been developed to check on your child's temperature throughout the day without having to bother them every time you need a reading. It works by you sticking a thermometer sticker to your child's skin. It then links up to an app on your phone, and notifies you if their temperature increases.
Ever worry that your kids aren't brushing their teeth properly? An app has been designed which is great fun for kids, and keeps you safe in the knowledge that your kids are maintaining proper dental hygiene without having to hover over them. A toothbrush connects to your phone via bluetooth, you give your phone to your child and it tracks every movement they make whilst brushing, giving them prizes for completing certain sections. Everyone's a winner!
If your child has an allergy or a health condition, it can sometimes be nerve wracking letting them out of your sight. Child-friendly wrist bands have been designed so that someone can easily identify your child has a certain health issue if the worst happens and you're not there.
Does your child have trouble sleeping, or awkward sleeping patterns? A mobile phone app has been designed with this in mind which tracks your child's sleep, compares it with others of that age range, and gives you tips on how to normalise their schedule.
Childhood obesity is of growing concern in the UK, and one of the ways we can help to combat it is through educating children about food and nutrition. There are a lot of apps available now on smartphones that team knowledge with fun games. So while your child is entertained with a game, they are also learning about what foods are healthy and necessary to our diets.
