Unfortunately, because of their being busy or lazy contemporary parents often forget and neglect the rules of healthy bringing of their offspring.

It is easier to switch on TV cartoons than ride the bikes, have a long walk or just enjoy the weather somewhere in the lawn or in the forest. It is obvious that many diseases and dysfunctions of the human body depend on the lack of enough quantity of fruit and vegetables in the everyday diet and passive lifestyle. Improper nutrition can show its harmful result only in years when it would be too late to change its consequences.

Healthy, smart, well- developed in all spheres children are a guarantee of it. Years will pass quickly and it would be their turn to care about the stable economy, provide professional medical services and care about the older generation. Therefore, welfare and good health condition of nowadays children are a top priority of contemporaneity. The celebration of Child Health Day reminds about it.
