Our little ones are the most precious resource we have. Child health and fitness has become a serious topic in recent years, and for good reason. Poor food choices and lack of physical activity have compounded this problem to make many of the illnesses that plague obese adults such as diabetes, arthritis, and heart disease. But here’s the good news: A child’s health is something parents and caregivers of children can actively influence on a daily basis. Choosing fruits and vegetables instead of processed foods promotes healthy food choices and establishes a model for kids to follow. Switch time in front of the television for more physical activity to burns calories and increase stamina. With a few modifications like these any family can incorporate into their schedule, child health and fitness will be on the rise one family at a time!
Breast cancer awareness month is now celebrating it's 25th year and the support is continuing to grow. The most recognizable symbol of support is the pink ribbon. The pink ribbon was first given out in 1991 during a Susan G. Komen race in New York City. It was a year later when the NBCAMF (National Breast Awareness Month Foundation) adopted the ribbon as it's official symbol. Now, you can not only wear a pink ribbon to show your support, but you can also purchase items from kitchen appliances to clothing as well as office supplies and medical jewelry that use the color pink in the design to show support.
