Many of parents even do not know whether their kids are actually overweight or not. Kids are overweight or not has some relation with kids physical activity and eating patterns. The lack of balance between diet and exercise could make your child look fatty and absurd and may keep them overweight and unhealthy until their adulthood.
The balanced diet with physical exercise helps the kids to get the nutrients they require and to keep the healthy weight. It also helps children steady more, build muscles and strong bones, get more energy, and avoid diseases caused by obesity such as type 2 diabetes or high blood pressure.
You have to play a big role in your child’s diet and overall health. And eat only what you want your kid to eat. If you eat healthy, your child will also eat healthy. If you want that your child to eat low-fat, low-sugar, or high-fiber food, you have to eat the same. However, you may have to try for more than ten times before your child accepts certain foods.
Check the school’s breakfast and lunch. Get involved in choosing the school menu, or include in your child’s lunch pack a variety of healthy foods. The media and your child’s friends may affect his or her food choices.
