Raising Healthy Kids

Tips for Parents.

You play an important role in shaping your children's attitudes toward exercise. Learn some tips to help them be more active.

Vaccines for Your Child

Babies are born with some natural protection from certain diseases. But they still need vaccines. 


Have Your Child Checked for Lead.

What is lead?

Lead is a heavy metal found in the earth's crust. It can combine with other chemicals to form lead compounds or salts. Lead is a natural element that does not break down in the environment and is very hard to clean up.


Teens and Drugs: Know the Signs.

Teenagers may be involved with drugs in various ways. Experimentation at this age is common. Unfortunately, most teens do not realize how their actions affect their futures. They might think they are free from problems that others have.


Keep Kids Fit and Healthy.

What is the first thing your kids do when they come home from school? Do they grab a snack and head for the TV or computer?

Eating too much and not being active can make kids too heavy. In the last 20 years, the rate of overweight kids has doubled. About 15% of kids ages 6-19 weigh too much. That means that nearly one out of every five kids is too heavy.
