Toddlers and babies often spend the better part of their time either plopped in front of the television or strapped into car seats. These deny them the chance of practicing their upcoming skills as well strengthening their muscles, lungs, and heart.

Kids seem to be drawn to sugar like moths to a flame. But we all also know that too much sugar, from any source, is bad for us. And, then again, children, unlike adults, need to eat a minimum amount of carbohydrates per day, and may need some fast-release carbohydrate at times, due to how energetic they are. As a parent, it can be very difficult to control our kids' sugar intake, so it is important to approach this challenge logically.

Did you know that even babies can develop high blood pressure? Many might think of this as uncommon but it isn't.
