Childhood Obesity Can Be Prevented

Childhood obesity is at an all time high, but there are some things you can do to keep your kids healthy.

Powell Pediatrics explains that balance is the key when it comes to healthy weight management. By balancing the calories that your kids eat and drink along with physical activity, you can keep your kids at a normal and healthy weight.

Make your kids nutritious snacks and meals and help them develop healthy eating habits. Small changes can make a huge difference.

Powell Pediatrics recommends that you give your kids plenty of whole grains, fruits, and vegetables along with low fat or non-fat dairy products. Opt for lean meats, beans, fish, and lentils for protein and serve portions that are reasonable sized. Encourage your entire family to drink plenty of water and make sure that everyone gets plenty of exercise.
