YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – A Salem doctor says there are things that you can do to make sure your kids get off to a healthy start for the start of the school year.
Dr. Mike Sevilla said the first thing to do is schedule a doctor’s appointment. There are vaccine requirements for certain school-age children. Your doctor can fill you in on all of the requirements.
Sevilla said it’s also a good idea to start changing a child’s sleep schedule now.
“It takes adults about a week to get adjusted to time change, so for younger children, it’s even longer than that,” he said.
Sevilla adds that breakfast is important — whether kids eat at it at home or at school.
