According to Wikipedia, obesity in children is a condition wherein the excessive body fat affects the child’s health + well-being in a negative way. The rate of obesity in children has alarmingly increased in the past few years worldwide + if left unchecked, it may lead to serious emotional + psychological problems + life-threatening ailments + diseases like high blood pressure, diabetes + cancer, as well as other other serious conditions like eating disorders + liver diseases. 

We all ought to put stock on our health + well-being + must take it upon ourselves to be healthy all the time. Battling obesity in children is no simple matter to deal with, but here are a few ways on how you can prevent it:

  • avoid sugary drinks ~ as their name suggests, these drinks are high in sugar + best to be avoided. For children, it is most ideal to opt for water + natural unsweetened juices each time you drink.
  • steer clear of fast food ~ fast food treats are often laden with oil, salt + sugar, that it will be best to avoid them as much as possible. It is probably okay to give in a couple of times a week, but make sure to limit your fast food visits.
  • say goodbye to those unhealthy snack items ~ if you want to prevent obesity from harming your children, it will be best to instill in them a good eating habit, starting with healthy snack items. Instead of stocking up on chips + sweets, offer fresh fruits + vegetables during snack time. Create charming bento meals out of them + am sure even the pickiest of eater will like it!
  • limit TV time ~ living a very inactive life is one surefire way to get those unwanted pounds, so make sure you limit your little one’s time in front of the telly. It is also ideal to not allow them to sit in front of the TV for longer periods of time. You can suggest that they play outside, read a book, explore the outdoors, ride a bike, go for a swim or go on a jog together, in between.
  • get enough sleep ~ younger children nowadays do stay up very late in the evening trying to mimic the ways of the adults, but getting less sleep is also a sure way to get those pounds that it is best to train them to sleep early to get just the adequate amount of sleep their growing bodies need.
  • have a healthy diet ~ it might be difficult to put any growing child on a diet but if it is something that his pedia recommends, it is best for parents + children to abide by it. The key is to have a very balanced meal every single time. Avoid fried, fatty + processed food and opt for fresh greens + veggies. If all else fails, good thing parents can now also consider other types of diet that might be beneficial to their children. You may also want to explore other ways to lose weight, like considering www.hcgdropsexplained.com, for example, but it is best to consult with medical practitioners when starting any type of diets or weight loss solutions, as they have the most ideal recommendations, as well as give you invaluable inputs + suggestions.
  • be up on your feet ~ nothing works better at melting those fats than being up on your feet + moving around. This summer, instead of lying in the couch for hours on end, enroll your little ones to sports clinics + summer classes, so they will be sure to be up on their toes even when they take a break from school. Sports is one perfect form of exercise + a great way to stay fit + healthy, the children can also learn independence, self-reliance + discipline. As a bonus, they can also gain new friends! Aerobics

recently we got this free secret message kit from my milk which includes a notebook + this cool secret ink pen. i immediately gave it a try. why secret message kit you asked? well, apparently the pen is made up of this cool which you only get to see with this blue light found at the other end of the pen. so after i doodled letters, all i have to do is turn on the blue light on the other end of the pen to see + read what i’ve written. isn’t it cool?
