Preventing Childhood Obesity

According to the survey by the Centre for Disease Control about one-third of American children are either overweight or at risk for becoming overweight. But the obesity epidemic is also evident throughout other parts of the world especially the industrialized nations.

One of the most loving things that you can do as a parent is to provide your children with nutritionally sound food and make sure they are active. With the recent rise in childhood obesity it has become apparent that too much fast food and a sedentary lifestyle is to blame. Try to lead by example by keeping the sweets and fatty foods to a minimum in your home and encourage regular exercise by making it part of your families regular routine.

Happy Parenting
