Health Tip of the Day

Keeping Children Safe on the Slopes

  • Get your child to wear wrist guards and a helmet.

  • Rent or buy equipment from a shop that knows the right way to fit boots and bindings. The staff also can help you pick a board of the right length.

  • Pay for lessons from a certified instructor.

  • Dress children in layers of clothing for protection from injuries and cold.

  • Train children to stay alert, take time to rest and not overextend themselves.

A regular exercise routine and good eating habits — along with medication if your doctor recommends it — can keep cholesterol levels under control and lower your risk of heart disease.
