WDEL's Delaware HealthWatch
with Frank Gerace

Back-To-School Health

It's almost back-to-school time, and parents can take simple, common sense steps to make sure their kids stay healthy while hitting the books.

Dr. Griffin Rodgers with the National Institutes of Health says students' schedules can get hectic, but busy school days and jam-packed after-school agendas shouldn't lead to skipped meals and physical inactivity.

Dr. Rodgers: "In fact, healthy eating and regular physical activity may help the whole family meet the challenges of a hectic school year."

Rodgers recommends healthy foods, like a turkey sandwich on whole-grain bread, and an hour or more of some sort of exercise most, if not all, days of the week.
