The Fit Tips Mission: Small Changes, Big Results!!
Keeping a family healthy with growing kids and busy parents involves so much more than annual checkups and immunizations!
Exercise, recreational fun and good nutrition are all part of the road to good, life-long health. Since Pediatrics Now first began in 2006, I’ve made it one of my missions to post tips that help you keep you and your family on a healthy path. The goal is simple: small changes that you can do over time that end up with big results…that everyone in your family can follow!
I recognize that you are already doing a lot of amazing things to keep your family healthy but know from my own family experience how daunting it can be to figure out how to accomplish your goals with such busy schedules. Small Changes, Big Results is designed to help you and your family make realistic changes step by step to your every day lives that will help you improve the health of your mind, body and soul.
