Obese youth are more likely than youth of normal weight to become overweight or obese adults, and therefore more at risk for associated adult health problems, including heart disease, type 2 diabetes, stroke, several types of cancer, and osteoarthritis. Healthy lifestyle habits, including healthy eating and physical activity, can lower the risk of becoming obese and developing related diseases.
It is now possible to buy sun hats for babies, which are made from material that is UPF50+ rated. The UPF (Ultraviolet Protection Factor) indicates how much ultraviolet radiation is absorbed by the fabric. UPF50+ is the highest rating that can be applied to clothing and essentially means that the fabric blocks 98% of the suns harmful rays.
It used to be advised that you should not use sunscreen on babies less than six months old, but the American Academy of Pediatrics now states that sunscreen is probably safe to use on younger children, especially if you just use it on small areas of your baby's skin that is exposed to the sun and not protected by clothing, such as the infant's hands and face.
New research shows that youngsters allowed to stay glued to a TV, computer, or video game have narrow retinal arteries - an anatomical "marker" for increased risk of high blood pressure, heart disease, and diabetes down the road. In order to lower kids' risk, parents would need to switch at least one hour of screen time with one hour of physical activity. By doing this, it would help boost the health of blood vessels.
Most drugs prescribed for children have not been tested in children. Before the Food and Drug Administration initiated a pediatric program, only about 20 percent of drugs approved by the FDA were labeled for pediatric use. By necessity, doctors have routinely given drugs to children "off label," which means the drug has not been approved for use in children based on the demonstration of safety and efficacy in adequate, well-controlled clinical trials.
