New cholesterol screening recommendation for children
- PHA needs parental support with early cholesterol screening to protect children from problems later in their life.
- Even after a normal cholesterol screen, healthy eating needs to be a daily family focus.
- Parents must increase the activity level of children and reduce screen time. PHA recommends one hour of moderate to vigorous exercise per day for all children over five years of age.
