DIY Dad Health Tip:
If you’re a “do-it-all-yourself” kind of Dad, then it’s doubly important that you make sure you’re physically fit. Start by getting the right vitamins and minerals. Our bodies need more of certain nutrients, like iron, to perform its daily duties. If you’re not able to get enough from your diet, talk to your doctor about vitamin and mineral supplementation so you can keep up with your family.
