Outdoor Adventures with Kids

High Altitude Fun by Age

Pediatric sports medicine doctor Aaron Provance, M.D., loves the outdoors. He's a seasoned mountaineer, hiker, mountain biker, rock climber and more, and he's a big advocate for getting kids out into nature. As a father of triplets, he's also realistic about what that involves.

To Meat or Not To Meat?

The Need-to-Knows of a No-Meat Diet

Some professional athletes practice a meatless or dairy-free diet, and your young athlete may express interest too. This is a great opportunity to discuss the importance of nutrition with your child and do research together on what it takes to manage a vegetarian diet.
