There are numerous topics dedicated to proper nutrition, for example. The importance of well balanced intake of essential vitamins, minerals and fibers is very well known, but people often do not know how to balance their diets.

Some diseases can be successfully treated if recognized in time. For example, if someone loses weight unintentionally, it might be a symptom of numerous health issues, and this person should inform his doctor about it. Different symptoms often are simply ignored, and they could be very important, or even save someone's life. If people have the opportunity to read something about it in your waiting room, they might recognize some of these symptoms.

Keeping parents well-informed is the best prevention. That's why every pediatrician should have some of these valuable handouts in their waiting room.
