Improving Health

As parents we tend to think we know what’s good for our kids, but our knowledge is mostly of the general variety. We know they need to eat lots of fruits and vegetables, and try to avoid excessive amounts of unhealthy fats, salt and sugar. But, do you know the specifics? How many calories a day does a child need? Do you know which nutrients your child is not likely getting in sufficient quantities? How would you know if there was a problem with your child's development?


A big decision new parents must make for the little one’s nutrition is whether to breastfeed or give formula. No matter what you decide, other people will surely have an opinion, but only one thing really matters: which choice is right for you and your baby?


For more than 20 years, Express Scripts Canada (ESC) has proudly committed to supporting Indigenous communities and businesses. More recently, ESC has more vocally proclaimed its unwavering commitment to support Indigenous communities across Canada.


We look at our kids and always worry about the little things: Are they eating enough greens? Do they spend too much time in front of a screen? Are they experimenting with cigarettes? Alcohol? Other drugs? Are they doing their homework? Are they popular among their peers? And the list goes on…


With all the problems that we have to deal with in the modern world, from traffic jams to climate change, from bullying to terrorism, there is one problem that is tied into all the others, that affects almost everyone, that often leads to illness and devalues our quality of life. But stress doesn’t always get a fair shake as far as problems go. We fundraise to fight cancer and hold marches to increase awareness of homophobia, but it’s very hard to find a politician going on about stress.
