Healthy diet and overall health 

Parent-Educator Source, Conflict and Solution

When educators notice a child is outside of a healthy weight range, has persistent illness, severe dental issues or is extremely lethargic it is important to understand the cause of this. Force feeding and irregular dental hygiene may be prevalent in certain cultures or communities. 

Encourage the family to become an active participant in the child’s overall health. Literature provided local health advisory, discussions about healthy food options and lifestyle choices are important ways to prevent long-term health problems.
