Healthy Mother’s Day Gifts

via Healthy Mother's Day

Looking for the perfect Mother’s Day Gift? Well if your Mom is a trying this challenge or is looking to live a healthier lifestyle, the folks over at offer up some excellent ideas for healthy Mother’s Day presents.

Here’s some ideas from the article:

A good night’s sleep

“Adequate sleep is linked to a lower risk of type 2 diabetes, as well as other health conditions.

“Buy your mom satin sheets, a new mattress, a mattress cover, or a luxurious pillow to encourage better sleep,” Dr. Savard says. “We know that restorative sleep is critical to our immune system and heart health.”

For new mothers, offer to watch the baby while she takes a nap. This will also allow you to spend quality time with the kids, so “it’s a win-win,” she says.”

The gift of healthy eating

“Rather than an expensive, artery-clogging brunch, make mom a light meal from your favorite healthy cookbook and leave the book behind for her to try out later. If she already cooks, present her with some skinny-kitchen gadgets, like a steam basket, grill pan, or oil mister.

You could even spring for a visit with a nutritionist and follow it with a healthy meal. “Mother’s Day is a great reason to get your mom to see a nutritionist,” Greene says. “Nutritionists can really tailor their advice to whatever issues mom is having with her diet.”
