Children's health facts

1.  Your baby birth

As soon as a baby is born, parents need to start thinking about his or her teeth. Unfortunately, we are finding that some babies are getting sugar in their diet from an early age,' says Dr Janet Clarke, a paediatric dentist based in Birmingham and spokesperson for the British Dental Association.

2.  Care from preschool

Trips to the dentist from ages six months to five years tend to involve lots of 'tooth counting' because baby teeth emerge from the gums. It's not gimmicky, we really need to know if a child's teeth are arriving, or not. Sometimes, they can be held up by a variety of things like diet,' says Dr Reza Hejazi, the principal dental surgeon at The Practice on the Hill in Hampstead, London.

3.  Primary School

By the age of six, a child should have started to lose milk teeth and will have many permanent teeth.Ideally, he or she should be brushing twice a day without help.The dentist may decide it's a good idea to apply sealant, or plastic coatings, to permanent teeth only. However, this is normally only done when a child has already started to show signs of tooth decay.

4.  Play Squash for better health

Squash is an intensive sport therefore making it ideal for weight loss. You are advised to do 30 minutes of moderate exercise a day on average, but for squash it is half this. So, you only need to do less than 2 hours of squash a week to stay healthy under the government’s guidelines. For squash weight loss you should do more than this.

5.  Crazy and Inefficient Weight Loss Products

There is a lot of money to be made selling weight loss products so naturally there are a few rogue products on the market that you will be tempted to buy but they won’t actually help you lose weight. It is usually products that claim they can help you get fit or lose weight without you having to do anything – always keep in your mind “no pain, no gain” to avoid weight loss product scams.

All exercise is good for health

Increasing the amount of fat burning exercise you do on a regular basis is an effective way to improve your health and fitness and help you make the most of the benefits of alli. When you consume fewer calories your body has to use its fat stores for energy and as it does that, you lose weight.

When you exercise, you can encourage your body to burn fat stores more often, so regular exercise can also raise your metabolic rate. This not only helps you lose weight and helps with your general fitness, it helps you maintain your weight loss.

Your metabolic rate is the rate at which your body uses up calories. So, if you take in 2,500 calories a day, and burn all those 2,500 calories a day, you’ll stay the same weight. If you burn only 2,000 of those calories, you’ll put on weight. Becoming more active is an effective way to speed up your metabolic rate so that you can burn more calories than you eat.

Regular exercise has a great many health benefits too, including helping to combat diseases such as diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and osteoporosis. Also, as your body releases natural feel-good chemicals when you exercise, this can boost your mental and emotional wellbeing, helping you to combat stress and feel happier. Remember to consult your doctor before you start an exercise programme.
