Parents are undoubtedly the backbone of the family, which is why it's so important for them to stay healthy
Healthy parents = a happy family! <3
Parents, you know how important it is to take care of yourself, to help you be the best mum or dad you can be. You can't be there for your kiddos and jaga them if you're not in tip-top condition, kan?
And of course, we always gotta look out for our own parents too, especially if they're on the older side. Our parents have spent their whole lives taking care of us, so it's our turn now. Even simple things like taking them for a checkup or buying supplements can make a positive change.
Watsons wants all parents out there to be healthy and happy, which is why they're hosting Parent Health Month, awww!
Throughout this month, you can enjoy greater savings on an assortment of health products to enhance your family's health and wellness.
As part of this, Watsons has even released two informative videos to help all parents be healthier. In the videos, Amber Chia and her parents sit down with Watsons pharmacist Ruby to learn some handy health tips.
Common challenges faced by younger, working parents include balancing hectic schedules with family life, eye strain from staring at devices all day long, and feeling burnt out.
Speaking to Amber, who also faces all those same challenges, Ruby shared about the importance of eating a balanced diet and getting enough rest, while also suggesting some health-boosting supplements.

On the other hand, elderly parents may be dealing with health issues like high blood pressure, cholesterol, diabetes, and joint pain. Amber's mum has all four, and even said that she regrets not taking better care of herself when she was younger.
Ruby gave her advice on types of food to incorporate into her diet, joint-support items, and specific supplements to tackle her health issues.
