Calcium and vitamin D are two important nutrients for adolescent growth spurt bone growth. Aim for your child to eat a total of three servings of low-fat dairy products (or iron-fortified soy milk) a day that provide 1,300 milligrams of calcium.

Physical activity. Set a goal of 60 minutes a day of physical activity for your child. Set limits on your child’s screen time, including TV, video games, smartphones, tablets and computers.


Many expectant mothers are afraid to go to medical appointments while taking precautions such as staying home and practicing physical distancing when outdoors. Find out what options your health care provider offers you.

It is your right to get that information, as it is about your body and your baby.”

The American Cancer Society recommends that cancer survivors who are in stable health after treatment follow the same nutrition guidelines as those recommended for cancer prevention. It is believed that the same factors that may increase cancer risk may also promote cancer recurrence after treatment. For example, research has suggested that the risk of breast cancer recurrence may be higher in women who are obese and do not eat a lot of fruits and vegetables. The risk of prostate cancer recurrence may be higher in men who eat a lot of saturated fats.

If you are overweight, consider losing weight by limiting calories and increasing your activity level to achieve and maintain a healthy weight range (check with your cancer care team before starting an exercise plan).

Errors can be related to medications, surgeries, diagnoses, equipment or laboratory results.
