BACK TO SCHOOL!
Is your child participating in contact sports this year?
Children that participate in sports of any kind always run the risk of an injury. Contact sports like football and soccer in particular have a higher probability of a collision, fall, or injury occurring. A common injury is a concussion.
Healthy Snacks vs. Junk Food
Coming up with healthy snacks to have on hand at home or on the go with busy schedules, to pack for lunch, or to share with your child’s classroom should be an easy item to cross off the to-do list if you plan ahead.
Make sure your child's immunizations are up to date!
Getting vaccinated according to the recommended immunization schedule is one of the most important things a parent can do to protect their child’s health. Diseases can quickly spread among groups of children who aren’t vaccinated.
