Parents can help their child have a healthy school year - 1
Narrator: This NIH Health Matters, I’m Joe Balintfy. Health experts remind that it is important for parents to keep their children healthy during the school year. Dr. Griffin Rodgers at the NIH says, busy school days and after school programs shouldn’t lead to skipped meals and inactivity.
Rodgers: In fact, healthy eating and regular physical activity may help the whole family meet the challenges of a hectic school year.
Narrator: He recommends healthier foods like a turkey sandwich on whole-grain bread, and at least 60 minutes or more of physical activity on most, preferably all, days of the week. For more information on children, healthy eating and physical activity, visit the Weight-control Information Network at www.win.niddk.nih.gov. Health Matters is produced by the National Institutes of Health, part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
