With childhood obesity on the rise, I often wonder what we can be doing to help. The list below is from the American Academy of Pediatrics website. It suggest things we can be doing RIGHT NOW to help prevent and treat childhood obesity.

The scientific community agrees that each one of the following can positively impact overweight and obesity in children and/or adolescents.
-Eat 5 fruits and vegetables per day
-Get 1 hour of physical activity a day (does not need to be consecutive)
-Limit screen time to less than 2 hours a day
-Limit consumption of sugar sweetened beverages
-Eat breakfast daily
-Switch to low-fat dairy products
-Regularly eat family meals together
-Limit fast food, take out, and eating out.
-Prepare foods at home as a family
-Eat a diet rich in calcium
-Eat a high fiber diet
-Breastfeed exclusively until 6 months and maintenance of breastfeeding after introduction of solid food until 12 months of age.

How many of these are you doing?
