School’s in: Important child health topics to kick off the school year

Fall is underway and school is back in session for most children and teens in the U.S. Many kids start off the school year with new notebooks and a new pair of shoes, but the beginning of the school year is also a great time to think about some important health topics for children in school.

From school sports and lunches to academic stress, the school year presents many opportunities and challenges for children’s health. That’s why we’re hosting a new back to school blog series to kick off discussion about some of these key issues.

Over the next few weeks, we’ll be covering new issues related to children’s health at school. Check back soon to see our first post or follow the series on twitter at #NPCHback2school. You can also submit your ideas for important health topics we should cover in our blog series! Leave us a comment here, tweet us @MottNPCH, or post your ideas to our Facebook page to join the conversation!
