Here are some tips to reduce your child's risk of greenstick fractures:

  • Encourage regular exercise, which builds strong bones.
  • Ensure that your child always wears safety gear for sports.
  • Use car seats and seat belts at every age.
  • Provide adequate calcium in your child's diet. Check with your doctor to see how much calcium your child needs, because the amount varies with age.
