Help Your Child Lose Weight.

Posted by:

Obesity during childhood has been linked with several negative health outcomes that can persist and worsen in adulthood. Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles notes that minor changes can help a child maintain a healthy weight: reduce or eliminate sweetened beverages, including soda; add more vegetables to family meals; make sure your family is eating a high-fiber diet; make sure your child is getting enough sleep; eat together as a family as often as possible; be a good role model by enjoying healthy food in front of your child; limit your child’s screen time to no more than two hours per day; and encourage your child to be active.
