Keeping Kids Healthy This Summer
According to a review of studies by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), many kids show an accelerated rate of weight gain during the summer months. I was interviewed by Kim Painter from USA Today on this topic and she included several of my tips for promoting good food habits during the summer months. The article appeared online and in print and has been widely disseminated in social media - How to head off kids' summer weight gain.
While we are on the topic, how about those long car trips with kids? I shared my personal family health strategies for surviving our "Oregon Trail Adventures" in this blog posted on the Pediatric Associates of the NW site.
