Amber Balash’s “Reasonable Health Care” article goes beyond specific cost-saving recommendations to remind us that simple and affordable preventative care and treatment methods are a vital foundation to overall health and wellbeing. This article is a great complement to previous articles on “Pregnancy, Childbirth, & Postpartum Care” and “Food and Nutrition for the Family,” as well as the upcoming article on recreation.

Stick to the basics, and you can make sure your child is healthy and safe without breaking the bank. And remember to take care of yourself. You need to stay in good health so you can care for the children who depend on you. You are also setting examples that will shape their future health into adulthood. No pressure — that’s just good parenting!
