You Can Prevent and Treat Childhood Obesity

Childhood obesity is on the rise, not only in the United States but also across the globe, and if your kids are overweight, schedule an appointment with Powell Pediatrics who can help you and your family stay on track, lose weight and get healthy.

A healthy diet, which includes plenty of lean meats, fresh fruits, and vegetables, along with daily exercise can trim the fat and help your kids lose weight. According to Powell Pediatrics, childhood obesity can be treated, but it all starts at home.

It’s nearly impossible to watch your kids when they are at school or hanging out with their friends. Snacking between meals on sugary drinks and snacks is one of the biggest culprits when it comes to childhood obesity. Pack healthy fun snacks for school and at play and your kids will be more likely to maintain their weight.

Childhood obesity is serious and can even cause Type 2 diabetes. Call or click and talk to Powell Pediatrics today.
