PHYSICAL ACTIVITY & ACADEMICS

Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans, 2nd edition recommend that children and adolescents ages 6 to 17 years do 60 minutes or more of moderate-to-vigorous physical activity daily.
There are benefits not only to physical health, but also mentally/academically.

According to the Center for disease control (CDC), students who are physically active tend to have better grades, school attendance, cognitive performance (e.g., memory), and classroom behaviors (e.g., on-task behavior).
Higher physical activity and physical fitness levels are associated with improved cognitive performance (e.g., concentration, memory) among students.

The national recommendation for schools is to have a comprehensive approach for addressing physical education and physical activity in schools.
This approach is called Comprehensive School Physical Activity Programs.

As the nation's health protection agency, CDC saves lives and protects people from health, safety, and security threats.

CARING FOR CHILDREN IN A DISASTER
A child's health is the public health.

Preparing for unexpected events is an important part of keeping children safe and healthy all year long. Events like the spread of a serious infection, an explosion, an earthquake, or a weather event, such as a hurricane, may cause health problems for large numbers of people, and especially for children.

Children make up one in four people in the United States and they have special needs during and after emergencies. Although younger children are often more affected than adults during disasters, there are concerns for children of all ages during emergencies because

1- Children may not be able to follow directions or make decisions to keep them away from danger during a disaster.

2- Children’s bodies use energy quicker than adults’ do, and they need food and water more often. This means that they will absorb poisons or dangerous chemicals faster than adults will.

3- Children have thinner skin and breathe faster than adults do, making them more likely to take in harmful substances through the skin or breathe them in.

4- Children are more likely to put their hands in their mouths, and spend more time outdoors and on the ground, making them more likely to come into contact with dangers in the environment.

5- Children may not be able to explain how they are feeling, which can make it harder to identify a medical problem and treat them quickly.

6- Children have more contact with others, and they have less developed immune systems to fight off infections. This means they are more likely to catch an illness that can spread from person to person.

THE AMERICAN ACADEMY OF PEDIATRICS RELEASES ANNUAL RECOMMENDATIONS ON PREVENTING INFLUENZA in 2019-2020

The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommends that all children ages 6 months and older are vaccinated for influenza for the 2019-2020 season, preferably by the end of October, with either the flu shot or the nasal spray vaccine.

The AAP expresses no preference for the shot or the nasal spray vaccine this season, in accordance with guidance provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), as described in the policy statement, "Recommendations for Prevention and Control of Influenza in Children, 2019-2020." The statement will be published in the October 2019 Pediatrics.

“The best way to keep children healthy and in school is to get the flu vaccine by the end of October,” said Flor Munoz, MD, FAAP, member of the AAP Committee on Infectious Diseases. “The flu virus is unpredictable, spreads easily and can cause serious illness, so we urge vaccination in children and adolescents to protect them, their family and community, as well.”

The annual flu vaccine significantly reduces a child's risk of severe influenza and death, especially in children younger than 5 years old and those with underlying medical conditions. As of Aug. 10, the United States CDC reported 129 influenza-associated pediatric deaths occurring during the 2018-2019 season. During the 2017-18 season, the CDC estimated that 80 percent of the 186 children who died from flu-associated complications had not been vaccinated against influenza.

Center for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) recommends NINE HEALTH HACKS for Back-To-School Success:

1- WASH HANDS
According to expert, washing hands is the single most effective way to prevent the spread of infection. Washing hands with soap and water or using an alcohol based hand sanitizer, is the best way to stop the spread of germs.

2- GET VACCINATED
Vaccines give parents and healthcare providers the means to protect preventable childhood diseases as they grow into adults

3- EAT WELL AND BE ACTIVE
Limit Sugary Drinks, junk food. Excercise as often as time and school work allow.

4- STAY COOLand HYDRATED

5 - PLAN FOR EMERGENCIES:
-Weather
-Medical
-Transportation

6- DO NOT USE E-CIGARETTE

It's just as harmful as conventional ci******es. Stay away.

7- STAY SAFE
Be aware of your surrounding, do not play rough, don't get friendly or close to any strangers.

9- PARENTS SHOULD CONNECT WITH KIDS AT SCHOOL AND HOME.

ARE YOUR KIDS READY TO GO BACK TO SCHOOL?

Sure, there is always a lot to be done to get them ready to get back into the classroom, such as buying school supplies, new clothes and shoes. But also important is making sure they are HEALTHY and ready to learn.

Get your kids off to a good school start by helping them stay safe and healthy on campus and in the classroom with these tips:

1. GET A CHECK UP
Make sure your children have been seen by their primary care physician within the past year to check their health and discuss any concerns, such as allergies or nutrition.

2. KEEP IMMUNIZATIONS CURRENT
“Not only do these vaccines prevent your child from getting a potentially serious illness, but they also go a long way toward eradicating these dangerous diseases,”

3. UPDATE MEDICAL INFORMATION
Let the school know of any medications your child takes, both at home and at school, as well as any medical conditions, such as diabetes, asthma, allergies or psychological issues. Be sure to provide contact information for your pediatrician.

4. REVIEW SAFETY RULES
Remind your children not to talk to strangers and never to get into a stranger's car, no matter what the circumstances. Choose a "code word" that only you, your children and trusted friends and family members know in case someone else has to pick them up, and instruct your children never to trust anyone who doesn't know the code word.

Teach your children their address and phone number to contact you. Instruct them to find a parent, teacher or other trusted adult immediately if they don't feel safe.

5. ESTABLISH EMERGENCY PROCEDURES

Familiarize your family with the school's emergency procedures, and provide current contact information for parents and other relatives. Decide on a meeting point near the school where you can meet your child in case of emergency if you cannot reach him or her by telephone. If your child is old enough to use a cell phone, it may be a good idea to provide one that is reserved only for urgent situations.

6. MAKE HELMETS A MUST
Does your child ride a bike to school? Helmet use can reduce the risk of head injury by up to 85 percent. Choose a helmet that meets federal safety standards and fits correctly. According to the National Safety Council, a helmet should fit low and snug across the forehead. If you look up and can't see the helmet, it's too far back.

7. AVOID BACKPACK OVERLOAD
A backpack that's too heavy or worn incorrectly can strain a child's neck or back and may cause injury. Backpacks should be lightweight with two wide, well-padded shoulder straps, a padded back and a waist strap. Pull both straps tightly enough so that the pack fits snugly against the back, but doesn't pull on the shoulders. Distribute the weight of items within the pack evenly on both sides, and keep it light.

The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that backpacks not exceed 10 to 20 percent of the child's weight. Consider a rolling backpack if allowed by the school.

9. SET REASONABLE SCHEDULES
Sports and extra-curricular activities help kids learn skills, socialize and have fun, but too much of a good thing can become stressful and ultimately negate the benefits.

“Let your children choose what they want to participate in and change or drop activities that aren't enjoyable or become too demanding,” Dr. Lichtmann says.

10. MAKE TIME TO TALK TO YOUR KIDS ABOUT WHAT'S GOING ON AT SHOOL
“Give them your full attention and let them know you are interested in their lives,” Dr. Lichtmann adds. “Not only does this let your kids know you care, it can help open the door to conversations about problems or concerns.

.AMERICAN ACADEMY OF PEDIATRICS SETS THE GROUND WORK FOR A SAFE AND HEALTHY CAMP KIDS AT SUMMER CAMP.

Nation’s pediatricians recommend advance preparation for medical emergencies ranging from homesickness to disease outbreaks to improve camp safety.

Thousands of children attend camp each year to enjoy new experiences and challenges, and whether they are canoeing, coding or creating art, they should be greeted with a positive, safe and healthy environment.

In an updated policy statement, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) offers recommendations to help families, physicians and camp administrators prepare for camp and make sure children’s health needs are considered, regardless of the setting.

The policy statement, “Improving Health and Safety at Camp,” published in the July 2019 issue of Pediatrics, breaks down guidance on immunizations, food allergies, and handling medications and health records, and is supported by the American Camp Association and Association of Camp Nursing.

All children should undergo a pre-camp health evaluation, according to the AAP. Parents need to be informed of the scope of health services available at the camp, and they are encouraged to discuss any special health needs with camp leadership in advance.

Approximately 14 million children supported by 1.5 million staff attend day and resident camps in the United States.

“Having a plan in place – and making sure that staff are properly trained – will help everyone feel more relaxed and eager to enjoy the experience,” Dr. Ambrose said. “A healthy camper is a happy camper.”

How do germs make your baby sick? | How Vaccines Work

Your baby’s immune system is strong but still needs help fighting some germs.

That’s where vaccines come in.

Vaccines protect children by working with their body’s natural defenses to help them safely develop immunity to some serious diseases. Learn more about how vaccines work, vaccine ingredients, as well as safety and potential side effects.

Vaccinating your child is the safest and most effective way of protecting them from serious diseases.

Watch the video below with your little ones to learn how vaccines work and to help your child be at ease about being vaccinated. It can be somewhat stressful to them at times.

Contact Dr Yvrose Valcourt if you have any questions or concerns.

07/16/2019

Summer is a great time for kids to enjoy different indoor and outdoor activities. Whether they are young children or teens, learn ways to keep your kids safe and healthy while they enjoy the summer.

WATER SAFETY
Always supervise children when in or around water. A responsible adult should constantly watch young children.

Teach kids to swim. Formal swimming lessons can protect young children from drowning.
Learn cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). Your CPR skills could save someone’s life.
Install a four-sided fence around home pools.

BEAT THE HEAT AND SUN
Never leave infants, children, or pets in a parked car, even if the windows are cracked open.
Dress infants and children in loose, lightweight, light-colored clothing.
Schedule outdoor activities carefully, for morning and evening hours.
Stay cool with cool showers or baths.

Just a few serious sunburns can increase you and your child’s risk of skin cancer later in life. Their skin needs protection from the sun’s harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays whenever they’re outdoors.

Cover up. Clothing that covers your and your child’s skin helps protect against UV rays.
Use sunscreen with at least SPF (sun protection factor) 15 and UVA (ultraviolet A) and UVB (ultraviolet B) protection every time you and your child go outside.

KEEP MOSKITOES AND TICKS AWAY

Protect yourself and your family by preventing bites and diseases, like Zika, West Nile virus and Lyme disease, which can be transmitted by insects.

Use an effective insect repellent while playing outdoors.
Make your backyard a tick-safe zone.
Check yourself and your children for ticks. Ticks are easy to remove.
