National Childhood Obesity Awareness Month
Approximately 19% of American youth between the ages of 2 and 19 are considered obese, according to the CDC. Public health officials have declared childhood obesity as an epidemic.
Overweight children are at a much greater risk for health problems now and in the future than children who are within a healthy weight range. The longer a child remains overweight, the greater the risk for developing serious long-term health problems like Type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol.
Fortunately, childhood obesity can be prevented. Healthy eating and regular physical activity are both the prevention and the “cure” for overweight children. Prevention is easier and more effective when parents start early. Promote healthy eating and exercise habits at an early age, incorporate them into your family and reinforce them as your child grows.
