Health Tip: Kids Need Strong Bones, Too

(HealthDay News) -- Your daughter's prime bone-building years are between ages 9 and 18. And the U.S. Office of Women's Health says it's never too early to start teaching her healthy bone habits.

The agency's "Best Bones Forever!" website offers these tips for the parents of young girls:

  • Set a good example by getting plenty of regular exercise and eating healthy foods.

  • Teach your daughter about the importance of a healthy lifestyle and building healthy bones.

  • Suggest that she participate in bone-building activities such as martial arts classes, sports and dancing.

  • Build your daughter's confidence and encourage her to try new activities.
