How can I help an obese child?
Posted by Jayson Hunter, Last modified by on 22 April 2011 11:18 AM
Research shows that the longer a child remains obese, the more likely he will be an obese adult. That's why it is important to encourage parents to work as a team with their child to establish healthy eating habits and exercise routines for the whole family. Obese children should not be on diets that restrict calories. The child's meals should be similar to their family's meals. The family should center eating on whole grain products, a variety of vegetables and fruits and serve lower fat meats and dairy products more often. Above all, encourage the family to focus on establishing lifelong healthy eating and exercise habits, rather than achieving a certain weight or body shape. Like adults, healthy children come in various shapes and sizes. A child should not be placed on a weight-loss diet.
