How Healthy Is Your Vancouver Community?

How Healthy Is Your Vancouver Community? Hello Vancouver residents! Welcome to my children’s health blog, Vancouver edition. I came across an interesting article in Children’s Health Magazine that got me thinking about children’s health factors in Vancouver.

Have you considered how your BC community influences your child’s health? In a recent study, independent experts compiled statistics on more than 30 factors that are important to a child’s development including: crime and safety, education, economics, housing, education, cultural attractions, and health.1

Burlington, Vermont came out on top, receiving high marks in all areas of study. Burlington has the fewest fast food restaurants per capita and experts believe this is linked to the low rate of obesity. Clearly, the rate of obesity in Richmond and Surrey is partially due to the ready availability of Big Macs and Whoppers.

While moving to Burlington isn’t necessary for your Vancouver child to thrive, ask yourself how your own BC neighborhood ranks. If you think it could improve, attend Vancouver city meetings or make changes within your own home.

You could encourage more participation in sports, start a crime-preventing Vancouver neighborhood watch group, cook as a family, or seek out Richmond museums and Delta cultural events. Whatever you choose, your children will reap the health benefits of your efforts.

If you want to improve your Vancouver child’s nutrition, contact me today to learn about a nutritional supplement packed with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.
