After an injury, physical therapists work to:

  • decrease pain

  • help kids return to daily activities

Eat a Variety of Foods
If you eat different foods, you’re more likely to get the nutrients your body needs.

Drink Water & Milk
Kids need calcium to build strong bones, and milk is a great source of this mineral.

Listen to Your Body
When you’re eating, notice how your body feels and when your stomach feels comfortably full.

Limit Screen Time
Try to spend no more than 2 hours a day on screen time, not counting computer use related to school and educational activities.

Be Active
One job you have as a kid — and it’s a fun one — is that you get to figure out which activities you like best.
