The first Monday in October is a national day to recognize children’s health and by heading online or visiting your favorite App store, you can gather great information and tools to keep your kids healthy.
There are many medical sites to search for information on kids’ health issues including eating habits, growth stages, mental health, physical activity and pretty much anything to do with the health and well being of kids.
On these sites not only can you find great tips and information but you can also join message boards and review and interact with blogs.
For times when your child comes up to you and says they don’t feel good, you can check out one of the many symptom checkers available online and determine if you need to call your child’s doctor right away or try some home care.
If you do need care, technology is helping to get that right in the comfort of your own home!
Children are now able to do some tele-health visits where they can do a video conference call with their doctor and then the doctor can suggest treatment or let them know they will need to be seen further in person.
Always keep track of your child’s medical needs and records for easy reference and you can download a wellness tracker to keep that right in the palm of your hand.
You can also purchase activity trackers which are a great way to ensure your child is getting enough physical activity.
Be sure to also download our FREE Into Tomorrow App and keep track of the growing tech and participate to win some of it!
