This month brings awareness to Obesity in children. 1 out of every 5 kids in the U.S. has obesity, and while there’s no simple solution to obesity it can be prevented. While some kids might have a medical condition leading to obesity, others who do not should take preventative measures. You can make sure that your child has a balance between sleep, screen time, physical activity and eating the right amount of calories. Parents can serve more fruits and vegetables at breakfast, lunch and dinner whenever they can.
Start with more water as well, this is a low calorie option to sugary drinks. With just eating better and playing more outside, kids can help maintain a healthy active lifestyle. With our Monthly Kids Snack we try to bring new ideas to your home each month. Check out this month’s snack in honor of Childhood Obesity Awareness Month!
