Childhood obesity can be predicted and prevented early on

shaw-push-component

As a mom of three, I know how hard it can be to say “no” to your kids when it comes to treats and unhealthy snacks. There are temptations for them everywhere they look, and as exhausted parents, we have a tendency to give in.

An article published by Shaw Media this week discusses the prevalence of childhood overweight and obesity and the importance of preventing it from the get-go. The earlier it is addressed, the earlier it can be prevented.

As a dietitian, the best advice I can give is to only allow healthy foods in the house, encourage your child to be active, and most importantly, be a good role model yourself.
