Kids and Kidney Stones--Please Read
According to doctors at the Children's Hospital Boston, kidney stones in children are on the rise. Besides family history, doctors say the two other big risk factors are not drinking enough clear fluids and having too much salt in the diet (foods such as white bread, salty snacks and beverages like soda). Encourage your children to drink a lot of water and watch their salt intake to prevent kidney stones and stay healthy!
