Healthy Summer Fun and Smiles

by Sandi on June 14, 2010

It’s that time of year where the schedule shifts with school out, late bedtimes, summer sports and days in the sun.  Keeping everyone healthy and balanced without running moms crazy is always a challenge.  Dental Hygienist Brenda Buergi has written a nice article titled “Your Child’s Summer: 7 Tips for a Healthy Smile” at http://www.examiner.com/x-26558-Green-Bay-Dental-Health-Examiner~y2010m6d14-Your-childs-summer-7-tips-for-a-healthy-smile#

If you are already hearing “I’m bored” consider checking out one of the many day camps in the Denver area at: http://gocitykids.parentsconnect.com/sub-category/denver-co-usa/resources/camps/summer-day-camps

Looking for summer fun without breaking the bank?  Visit http://www.denverkids.com for some fun ideas with hundreds of coupons for the Denver area.

One way to keep kids feeling good is healthy, kid-friendly recipes.  Kids love to eat what they have helped make themselves.  Have your children pick something they’d have fun making and will encourage them to eat well.  Visit http://kidshealth.org/kid/recipes/index.html
