Issue Date: September 7, 2005

Serpentine Die Cut 10.5 x 11
Quantity: 65,000,000

At the beginning of the 20th century, infection caused most of children’s illness and death. Today, motor vehicle accidents are the leading cause of death of five- to nine-year-olds. Children should always ride in an appropriate safety seat, correctly installed in a vehicle’s back seat.
 
Four of the risk factors for diabetes, heart disease, and cancer usually begin in childhood: tobacco use, obesity, unhealthy diet, and inadequate exercise. By the time they graduate from high school, 40% of American students smoke cigarettes, 43% engage in little regular physical activity, 73% have poor diets, and 25% are overweight or at risk of being overweight.
 
Children should eat three nutritious meals daily, with two healthy snacks. Food and drink high in sugar and caffeine should be avoided.
Regular physical activity in childhood, an hour a day, can improve strength and endurance, help build healthy bones and muscles, and control weight.
 
The “Child Health” stamp was issued to remind Americans to guard children’s health. With regular medical exams, proper use of car seats, reduced tobacco use, more physical exercise, and a nutritious diet, our children have a better chance to become healthy adults.
