Children’s Health – Full or Partial Immunization

Childrens Health

Children are not just small adults. They have  unique issues regarding development, nutritional needs, stresses and changes with our modern life. Role modeling healthy choices is the greatest lesson we can offer. Encouraging and supporting their healthy choices and making them fun is important.

Issues

  • New moms often need extra support, especially with their first baby.
  • The effects of healthy (and unhealthy) eating, and toxins are magnified in children.
  • Treats of sugar, carbs and junk food are not ‘treats’, but teach our children bad habits.
  • Excess ‘empty calories’ and low activity are the contributors to the epidemic of obesity and Diabetes. 
  • Current estimates are that 30% of todays children will develop Diabetes.  We can prevent that with our choices and role modeling.
  • Being aware and stopping childhood abuse of all kinds, from sexual, to verbal, to bullying, to toxic exposure is a major responsibility of the adults in a child’s life
  • Safety is very important. Wear bike helmets,  use car seats and be in cars with safe drivers. Medicines should be in child proof bottles and  kept high out of reach.
