Adults aren’t the only ones who should be thinking heart smart this February, as heart disease is a concern for an increasing number of children, too.

The good news is that most kids can address these risks with changes in diet and exercise. Throughout February, which is American Heart Month, BeSmartBeWell.com highlights the heart risks facing overweight kids and provides advice for how to manage them.
