'Mayo Clinic Guide to Raising a Healthy Child' answers key questions

New "How To" book helps parents navigate the younger years.

Drawing from the collective wisdom of pediatric experts at Mayo Clinic, Mayo Clinic Guide to Raising a Healthy Child addresses key questions and concerns many parents have about the preschool and school-age years.

Parents learn what to expect between ages 3 and 11. The book focuses on everything including: feeding a picky eater, resolving sleep problems, addressing bullying, treating common injuries and illnesses, and coping with complex health care needs. Experts also explain what it takes to prepare a child for a rich and meaningful adult experience.

"Fortunately, there are plenty of opportunities to provide children with balanced, healthy life choices and to build a strong foundation that allows children to weather life's ups and downs," says Angela Mattke, M.D., a pediatrician in the Division of Community Pediatric and Adolescent Medicine at Mayo Clinic Children's Center in Rochester, Minnesota, and the book's editor. Mayo Clinic Guide to Raising A Healthy Child is available now at major bookstores everywhere and on Amazon. For more information, click here.
