A Healthy Family is a Happy Family
Having a healthy family means that parents, children, and other family members are in good health physically, mentally, socially, spiritually, and emotionally. It means working together as a family to improve everyone’s overall health. Every family is different so every family will have a slightly different way of staying healthy.
Why is it important to keep children healthy?
Keeping children healthy increases the quality of life of the child and of the family. It also decreases the child’s risk of disease in adulthood. Many of the risk factors for common adult diseases, such as heart disease, diabetes, and mental health issues, begin in childhood. Healthy children are also more likely to succeed scholastically.
