How Old Is Your Child's Heart?

Healthy lifestyle habits can make an impact on your child before he reaches adulthood. This video discusses why a nutritious diet and regular exercise matter now.

Heart disease is a widespread problem, and cardiac care experts are finding that it can affect anyone of any age. Children who eat high-fat and high-sodium diets in particular can be at risk for early heart disease. A lack of consistent physical activity can also make kids prone to obesity and high blood pressure, early indicators of cardiac trouble. When your child doesn’t eat wholesome foods or work out regularly, his heart can age quickly. So to avoid early heart disease, make healthy living a habit in your home.
