Children's Health

Children's Health topics include physical, mental and social well-being of children. Most parents know the basics of keeping their children healthy, like offering them healthy foods, making sure they get enough sleep and exercise and insuring their safety. Another important part of Children's Health is to get your children regular checkups with their health care provider. These visits are a chance to check your child's development and they are also a good time to catch or prevent children's health problems.

The below Children's Health articles include, and are not limited to, the following topics: Children and Teen Weight Loss Diets, Nutrition for Children and Teens, Allergies and Asthma, Childhood Diseases (e.g., appendicitis, chicken pox, croup, epilepsy, measles, whooping cough), Emotional Behavior Disorders (e.g., Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, depression), Bedwetting, Childhood Vaccinations and Sun Protection.
