Holiday Health Tips From Packard Children's Hospital
Date:11/24/2008

tovers and sweets around, replace them with foods like pomegranates, which can be a cool surprise for kids." Robinson also suggests an out-of-sight, out-of-mind approach. "Often, candies and sweets are only eaten because they're just sitting there, right out in the open."

Working calories off during bad weather

"We sometimes hesitate before letting kids outside when the weather is cold and wet," said Robinson, who offers advice that may be surprising to some parents. "But families need to know that kids don't get colds from being in the cold. They get colds from viruses. Sending kids out to play in the cold, or even a little bit of rain, will not get them sick."

How to limit screen time

Make a budget. "Our team suggests a budget of seven hours a week total screen time, which includes TV, DVDs, videogames and computers," said Robinson, who's led multiple research efforts into the relationship between screen time and children's eating habits, weight gain and effects on education. "This means an hour a day, which is easy for kids to understand. And it allows kids to discover alternatives on their own, which is more motivating than being directed to do so by their parents."

(DISCLAIMER: Dr. Robinson admits that he finds Cherry Garcia tough to resist.)
