Make a special effort to ensure that children are getting the foods they need for healthy growth and development. Vitamin D plays a key role. A few minutes of sunshine should provide an ample supply of this vital vitamin.

You will need to pay special attention to the minerals in your diet if you are suffering from kidney failure. Pay attention to instructions from your renal dietitian.

Carrying around too much fat could put a strain on your heart and lead to serious complications. Do your best to shed a few pounds by the year's end. You can do it if you put your heart and mind to it.
