February is Heart Month.
Putting your health first always sounds easier than it seems. At times, it’s like there are more diets, tips and tricks out there than there are real solutions.
With March being Nutrition Month and Liver Health Month, it’s time to take the right preventative measures and work in healthy habits into our everyday daily lives. Our mission to change the health of children starts here.
Children’s Hospital at London Health Sciences Centre understands that a child’s liver health requires attention to their daily nutrition and several other factors.
LHSC facilitates an exceptional Multi-Organ Transplant Program for patients suffering from polycystic liver disease, however, LHSC’s mission is to encourage patients into an active and healthy lifestyle to ensure that liver conditions do not continue to a point where a transplant is needed.
The Children’s Health Foundation effectively supports over 2.1 million children and families within the London region. Children’s Hospital at London Health Sciences Centre’s focus is on family-centered care so that the patient and their family can feel empowered to put health first together.
Liver Health Month was established by the Canadian Liver Foundation to increase awareness of liver health and continuously push liver research to the forefront. Contrary to popular belief, liver-related diseases aren’t limited to adults. In fact, “children as young as two years old can be affected by non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD)” .
Nutrition Month is Dietitian Canada’s initiative to nourish the lifestyles of families and urges parents to bring children into the kitchen to foster healthy food experiences early on and embrace cooking as a way to bond and learn.
