At Westchester Health, we feel strongly that one of the best things you can do to ensure your children’s ongoing well-being is to help them make smart, nutritious food choices, now and throughout their lives. But in today’s fast food/takeout world, how can you get kids to choose healthy food? Start by reading this great blog by Lauren Adler, MD, FAAP, a pediatrician with our Westchester Health Pediatrics group.
Now that Westchester Health is part of Northwell Health and its physician organization, Northwell Health Physician Partners, we have greatly expanded our services to bring you and your family the best possible care. Best of all, this new relationship means that you now have access to the outstanding resources of Cohen Children’s Medical Center, the New York metropolitan area’s only hospital exclusively for children.
Eating together as a family launches a lifetime of healthy eating
These days, more and more children spend hours a day engaged with screens and electronic devices rather than with their families. Not only that, more and more parents in our communities are working full time, meaning that they’re often over-scheduled and over-stressed. Here at Westchester Health, we have found that a key way to address these issues is with family meal time.
