Slide Title Physical activity & exercise:  Active engagement in physical activity and exercise is the most important thing that a child can do in growing years to improve bone and joint health. Regular exercise both aerobic and resistance training increases the bone density, joint flexibility and strengthen the overall skeletal health making less susceptible to injuries and musculoskeletal problems in near future. So make sure your child gets at least an hour physical activity and exercise that includes both aerobic and weight-bearing exercises . Well balanced diet rich:  While exercise and physical activity forces the body to adapt, optimal growth can happen only when supplemented with a  well-balanced diet rich  on both macro and micro-nutrients.
