Healthy Habits:
It is important to begin teaching your child about healthy habits at a young age. As children get older, bad habits become more difficult to break. Teaching healthy habits at a younger age improves the likelihood of a successful, healthy lifestyle that will last for years to come. A solid foundation of healthy habit teaching can lead to a decrease in chronic illnesses such as obesity, diabetes, heart disease, and many others.
