Foreword Foreword


Dear Parents,


T e National Association of Pediatric Nurse Practitioners (NAPNAP), an organization of advance practice nurses committed to teaching parents and children why being healthy matters, writes Ready


, Set, Grow (Raising Healthy Kids) just for you — the


busy, caring parent. Responses from you and our members have been so positive that the number of issues published couldn’t keep up with the demand. And, as good as previous issues were, the things we learned from them have made this Spring/Summer 2012 issue even better. We have added new articles with important new information on many topics. As you read through the pages that follow, you’ll fi nd a quick and


relevant guide, with answers to the questions most parents have about their children’s health. Use this publication to learn about nutrition and fi tness, growth and development, and many other health issues crucial to families. Written by a panel of NAPNAP experts, Ready


, Set, Grow also provides special incentives from sponsors,


who make this resource possible. Ready


, Set, Grow refl ects NAPNAP’s mission: “Promoting optimal health for


children through leadership, practice, advocacy, education, and research.” Every day, our members help families. Ready


, Set, Grow extends our ability to reach and teach


families about ways to be healthy and fi t. As the elected President of NAPNAP, I am excited to share with you the infor- mation and incentives you’ll fi nd on these pages. Please take some time to browse through this issue. We’re confi dent the topics will grab your attention and the incentives will help you stretch your family budget. Let us know your thoughts about this issue, as well as your suggestions for future topics. E-mail me at president@napnap.org.


Happy and healthy reading,


Cheri Barber, DNP, RN, CRNP President, National Association of Pediatric Nurse Practitioners
