Back to School Health Tips

It is that time of year again, the kids are back in school, which means your child will spend a large portion of their day away from home. In order to ensure your child participates in healthy habits while at school, it is important to encourage healthy habits at home. Below are a few tips to keep in mind as you kick-off the school year:

  1. Focus on your child's nutrition. Encouraging your child to make healthy food choices will help them establish good nutritional habits that will last a lifetime.

  2. Know the health risks your school-aged child may face. Common health issues that affect school-aged children include head lice, scoliosis, poor vision, and ear infection. 

  3. Make sleep a priority. Children aged six to 13 need 9-11 hours of sleep. It is important to teach school-aged children about healthy sleep habits

  4. Communicate, communicate, communicate. Children want to be heard and understood by their parents.
