Joints

Never postpone supporting your bonesFamilies have an essential role in helping children to develop and look after their joints. Good nutrition is crucial for bone and joint development. Exercise promotes strength, flexibility and fitness. However, lack of exercise and being a “couch potato” can lead to a downward spiral of reduced fitness, inflexibility and muscle weakness. This is a recipe for difficulties in later life.
