With a plethora of digital games, movies, TV shows, and online videos from influencers, kids these days may have a tendency to spend more time than ever indoors. Of course, not all device time is by choice ever since completing homework has become dependent on them, so your child’s busy schedule may often simply preclude fitting in much physical activity. National Walk & Bike to School Day, on October 6, is an excellent reminder to get outside in the fresh air and, hopefully, sunshine, setting aside the screens for a brief period. In fact, what more perfect time is there to fit that much-needed exercise into a child’s day than the time they have to spend traveling anyway?
Helping your child become and remain healthy today will create a foundation for your child to have brighter and more hopeful years to come. At Pediatric Dental Group, we are eager to do our part in helping you set your child up for a healthy and successful future.
