Consumer Reports has rounded up an array of back-to-school tips on its health blog. Everything from “eat your veggies” to “wash your hands” gets covered. While you’re there, check out the rest of Consumer Reports’ blogs, which include money, safety and cars. The nonprofit organization, which happens to be in our backyard in Yonkers, is not only a valuable resource, but provides a consumer watchdog service that’s unmatched even by our government.

About this blog
Parents’ Place is a hangout for openly discussing the A’s to Z’s of raising a child in the Lower Hudson Valley. From deciding when to stop using a binky to when to let your teenager take driving lessons, Parents’ Place is here to let us all vent, share, and most of all, learn from each other.
Leading the conversation are Julie Moran Alterio, a business reporter and mom of a toddler, Jorge Fitz-Gibbon, a reporter and single father with joint custody of a 9-year-old son, and Len Maniace, a reporter and father of two sons.
