Childhood obesity has been linked to high blood pressure, diabetes, anxiety, depression, and poor academic performance. Childhood obesity has almost tripled since the early 1970’s. How could this be and what can we do about it?
It turns out that children are spending more time doing sedentary activities, such as; watching TV and playing video games. As parents, we have to make an extra effort to get them to be more active.
There are many activities that we can do together as a family that will benefit their health as well as our own health.
*Go on bicycle rides
*Go for walks around the neighborhood
*Take them to a local park
*Swim at a local pool
*Eat more fresh food
*Cut back on processed food
For help on getting your child’s weight back on track, please see your pediatrician.
