How to Avoid Obesity among Your Kids

My kid is around 45 kilograms and he is just 8 years and he is indeed overweight for his age. Now, we have to force him to go slow on his food and juice intake along with his immobility.
An expert suggested that to avoid obesity is to stop providing opportunities when kids can freely eat and just sit for hours.

So, to prevent and address obesity, as parents, we can do the following:

  • Don’t allow free access to food supply;
  • Have measured meals at regular time;
  • Encourage outdoor and indoor games that will allow walking or running;
  • Encourage frequent intake of water instead of flavored drinks;
  • Be a role model in everything: diet, lifestyle, hobbies;
