Understanding Childhood Obesity
The increase in childhood obesity may be related to youngsters' getting too little exercise and eating too many foods that are high in calories and fat.
Healthy Eating
Healthy eating habits are especially important during childhood. Set a good example by the foods that you, as parents, eat.
Being Active
Exercise should be part of your child's daily activities. Limit screen time—TV, video, and computers—to less than two hours a day.
