Delta Children's Heart Disease Risk

A growing number of BC children are developing high cholesterol, high triglycerides, and type 2 diabetes which are all risk factors for heart disease. According to the American Heart Association, there is credible evidence that cholesterol buildup in arteries begins in childhood.

A recent Australian study claims that lifestyle changes made before adulthood, such as healthy eating habits, exercise, and weight management are likely to reduce the risk for heart disease later in life.

The three main risk factors for Vancouver children in developing high cholesterol are heredity, diet, and obesity. Visit with your Vancouver doctor to have your own cholesterol checked to make sure your kids aren’t at risk.

When shopping at your Vancouver grocery store, stock up on healthy snacks like nuts, dried fruit, and yogurt. Helping Vancouver kids and Richmond make healthy lifestyle choices now prepares them to have healthy lifestyles as adults.

As a health and wellness business owner and Delta children’s advocate, I would love to share more information about children’s nutrition and healthy snacking. Please call or email me today.
