Helping Your Kids Stay Healthy:

Physical and Mental Wellness Podcasts for Kids

January 3 is International Mind-Body Wellness Day, a great occasion to consider what you can
do to help your kids stay physically and mentally healthy. One option is to let yourself be
inspired by some of the many wellness podcasts available. The thing about podcasts is that you
can listen to them whenever you have a spare moment, including when you’re doing other

Here are some of the best ones.

“Healthy Kids Zone”
(Available at: Apple, Listen Notes, Podchaser)

Created and hosted by Dr. Cindy Gellner, a well-known pediatrician and mom of two sons,
Healthy Kids Zone is a long-running podcast which explores all aspects of kids’ health, from
infancy through the teen years. On this podcast, you’ll find great advice on anything from
treating your kids’ bug bites to dealing with sleep issues and managing their social media use.
It’s a great one-stop resource for health and wellness information.

“The Kids Health Network”
(Available at: Apple, Listen Notes, Spotify)

Like Healthy Kids Zone, The Kids Health Network is also produced by a physician: Dr. Andrew
Leech, the father of two daughters. This podcast is also aimed at parents of kids of all ages and
much of the content focuses on kids’ emotional health. Through conversations with other

experts, Dr. Leech explore important topics such how to best parent neurodiverse kids, how to
help kids cope with grief and loss, and what to do when your kids are being cyberbullied.

“Natural Super Kids”
(Available at: Apple, Listen Notes, Spotify)

Natural Super Kids offers a different approach to kids’ health. The brainchild of Jessica
Donovan, a naturopath and author of many books on alternative medicine, this podcast focuses
on how parents can use natural remedies to help their kids stay healthy and strong. Recent
episodes discuss how parents can manage allergies, asthma, ear infections, sleep issues, stomach
pain and many other ailments in a holistic way.

“Peace Out”
(Available at: Apple, Listen Notes, Spotify)

Peace Out also promotes a holistic approach to kids’ health but in a very different way than
Natural Super Kids. Instead of offering straightforward advice, it includes stories, breathing and
visualization exercises and meditation techniques to help kids to better center themselves and
become less anxious and stressed. It’s produced by Chanel Tsang, a well-known Montessori
educator who’s also a certified meditation, mindfulness, and yoga teacher.

“The Youth Fitness Podcast”
(Available at: Apple, Audible, Spotify)

Unlike the prior podcasts, The Youth Fitness Podcast is almost exclusively focused on how
parents can help their kids stay physically fit. Created and hosted by Jeff and Mikki Martin, the

developers of a widely-used strength-and-conditioning program for kids called the “Brand X
Method,” this podcast explores issues such as how parents can encourage their kids to become
more physically active and how to help them develop their stamina and resilience.
