    Curtis Harwell & Richard Neal Discuss Childhood Obesity and Prevention

    in Fitness

    Childhood obesity is a serious medical condition that affects children and adolescents. It occurs when a child is well above the normal weight for his or her age and height.


    Childhood obesity is particularly troubling because the extra pounds often start children on the path to health problems that were once confined to adults, such as diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol. Childhood obesity can also lead to poor self-esteem and depression.


    One of the best strategies to reduce childhood obesity is to improve the diet and exercise habits of your entire family. Treating and preventing childhood obesity helps protect the health of your child now and in the future.


    Symptoms


    Not all children carrying extra pounds are overweight or obese. Some children have larger than average body frames. And children normally carry different amounts of body fat at the various stages of development. So you might not know just by looking at your child if his or her weight is a health concern.


    Your child's doctor can help you figure out if your child's weight could pose health problems using growth charts and, if necessary, other tests.


    When to see a doctor


    If you're worried that your child is putting on too much weight, talk to his or her doctor. Your child's doctor will consider your child's individual history of growth and development, your family's weight-for-height history, and where your child lands on the growth charts. This can help determine if your child's weight is in an unhealthy range.

    Curtis Harwell Discusses Childhood Obesity and Stopping it.

    in Fitness

    Tip #1 -
    Allow your child to play with her food. 


    Yes, you heard me right.  Trying something new can be a challenge to small children.  Allow them to use all their senses to explore new and sometimes strange fruits and vegetables.  Let him hold the kiwi and treat it as a ball before you cut it and let him eat the green inside.  Let her pretend to color with the celery stick before she tries it.


    Tip #2 -  
    Encourage your child to be creative with their food. 


    Make fruit salad into a smiley face.  Use two grape halves as the eyes, a strawberry half as the nose and an orange slice as the mouth.  Try ants on a log.  If the child is over two, place peanut butter on a banana that has been sliced lengthwise.  Sprinkle raisins over the sticky peanut butter to represent the ants.  You can also replace the banana with a celery stick.


    Tip #3 -
    Read stories to your children about food. 


    This age group loves to spend time listening to their parents read to them.  Take advantage of this.  Not only will this help their cognitive abilities but can also help them to try healthy foods.



    Trying to introduce a protein rich egg, read Green Eggs and Ham by Dr. Seuss.
    Oliver's Vegetables, Rabbit Food or any Veggie Tales book is great while introducing new vegetables.
    Alligator Arrived with Apples or Oliver's Fruit Salad helps to get new fruit down.  You may even want to play the game Hi, Ho Cherrio, too.
    Wanting your little one to like whole grains, try If You Give A Pig A Pancake, If You Give A Moose A Muffin or The Little Red Hen.
