Health Tips for March 28

Health Tip: Everyone Should Wear a Bike Helmet
There should be no debate or argument in your home when it comes to wearing a bicycle helmet, experts say.
The American Academy of Pediatrics suggests how to encourage children to wear a helmet, avoiding a big battle
Make wearing a helmet a habit, starting with a child's first tricycle ride.
Set an example for your child. Parents should always wear a helmet themselves.
Explain to your child why it's so important to wear a bike helmet.
Give your child plenty of praise, and maybe a little treat, for wearing a helmet.
Speak to other parents so your child's friends all wear helmets, too.
Health Tip: Make Sure Your Helmet Fits
Whether you're rollerblading, biking or skiing, a helmet can protect you from a deadly head injury.
The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons says a helmet won't offer full protection, however, if it doesn't fit properly. The group offers these helmet-fitting suggestions
Make sure you select a helmet that meets standards set by the Snell Memorial Foundation or the Consumer Product Safety Commission.
Make sure the helmet fits snugly and doesn't slide in any direction.
The helmet should sit squarely on your head and be level, without tilting.
The helmet should include a chinstrap to hold it in place.
