As students head back to school this week, there is no better time to think about health. A new year leaves parents with a lot to think about – nutrition, exercise, environmental stresses, new routines etc.
Health Canada has come up with an online resource that might help guide some of your decisions around back-to-school health. They cover topics like allergies in school lunches, active and safe routes to school, sun awareness for recess playtimes, and physical activity guides.
Check out all the materials here and get ready for an exciting new school year!
