Child Wellness Tips: Stay Active This Holiday Season!

Child Wellness Tips: Stay Active This Holiday Season!

 

From author, Stephanie Walsh, M.D., Medical Director, Child Wellness, Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta

The holiday season has arrived! It’s a time for parties, presents and holiday cheer. However, it can also be a season of little activity and over-indulging. As the weather cools down, children are often tempted to stay inside in front of the T.V. or a video game rather than play outside. Holiday specials also can draw your family to the T.V. screen this time of year. Eating healthily can present additional challenges when faced with party buffets, holiday sweets and large family meals.

A Holiday Gift that Helps Local Kids in Need

Are you still looking for a gift for a special someone on your list? This holiday season, you can honor that special person and help kids in crisis at the same time. 

Daniel is selling commemorative bricks to pave the way for their new Education Center, which will help fill the educational gap for abused, foster and formerly homeless kids. Your engraved brick will become a permanent part of the Daniel Education Center campus, leaving a lasting legacy of love and hope for children in the community for years to come.

Bricks cost $200, which includes an engraved mini brick replica the honoree gets to keep to remember their special gift. Please visit Daniel's website to learn more.
