Good health is a life­long pur­suit and health in lat­er life is often pred­i­cat­ed by behav­ior and inter­ven­tions ear­li­er in life. Pre­ven­tive care in chil­dren is an oppor­tu­ni­ty, even an oblig­a­tion, to address prob­lems ear­ly in a per­son­’s life.This is not only to ward off a lat­er con­di­tion, but to give chil­dren the best chance for a ful­ly pro­duc­tive life.
