Powell Pediatrics Can Help Your Obese Child

Powell Pediatrics understands that your kids are not small adults and require special medical care.

Dr. Carl Timothy Morris is trained to help you come up with a plan for your kids when it comes to a healthier lifestyle and that includes a good meal plan.

Astoundingly, one in five children in the United States is obese or overweight, and although kids who are overweight have fewer problems than adults do when it comes to medical issues, they are more apt to become overweight adults.

One of the biggest reasons kids are overweight is inactivity. These days more boys and girls are staying inside watching TV or playing computer games instead of enjoying the great outdoors.

Diet is also another reason that kids are overweight. Fast food and unhealthy snacks have become the norm. Try feeding your children a healthy diet that is loaded with fresh fruits and vegetables and get them to drink water instead of soda.
