It is very important for us to promote breastfeeding, adequate nutrition and other healthy habits.
In the promotion of breastfeeding, we encourage its maintenance within the first two years of life. During the first 6 months will be exclusively and will be supplemented with adequate food at least until the year, although the ideal is to extend it until two years.
At Magna Clinic, we have a highly specialized unit in children’s nutrition, with two areas: an area dedicated to childhood obesity and an area for poorly eaters.
In our department specializing in child nutrition at Magna Clinic we jointly develop healthy eating, physical activity and sports.
We have a special chapter dedicated to childhood obesity in which we encourage a balanced diet and adequate physical activity. It is recommended both children and girls in preschool and school age to accumulate at least 60 minutes of moderate intensity physical activity on a daily basis as well as limit screen hours to less than two hours a day. It is very important that we offer sports and fun activities to our children.
It is important to control the Body Mass Index from 2 years old in health check-ups.
Within the follow-up programs for children’s health we develop more chapters such as:
- Early detection of hip dysplasia and orthopedic disorders.
- Early detection of cryptorchidism.
- Early detection of eye and vision disorders.
- Early detection of hearing loss.
- Monitoring of psychomotor development, language, pondoestatural and puberal development.
