Health Tip: Protect Your Child's Heart Health

(HealthDay News) -- A child is never too young to practice heart-healthy habits, which may help even more as the child gets older.

The American Academy of Pediatrics suggests these heart-healthy habits for kids:

  • Feed children a heart-healthy diet including low-fat dairy products.

  • Tell your child's pediatrician about any family history of heart disease.

  • Consider regular cholesterol screening, especially if the child is adopted and family history isn't available.

  • Promote plenty of regular exercise.

  • Help your child maintain a healthy weight.
