Childhood Obesity and How to Prevent it

Childhood Obesity and How to Prevent it

Oviedo, FL

Obesity is an epidemic in our country, and nowhere is this fact more pronounced than when one looks at the childhood obesity rates among young American children. According to the CDC, childhood obesity rates have double in children and quadrupled in adolescents in the past 30 years, indicating a staggering increase in obesity-related health issues later in life.

In order to combat this growing epidemic, it is important to understand the risks obesity can have on children. According to the Mayo Clinic, childhood obesity can lead to a number of issues later in life, including high blood pressure, diabetes, and high cholesterol.

In order to prevent these and other risks associated with obesity, as well as to improve overall quality of life, it is important to prevent obesity both in yourself, your children, and the rest of your family.

One way to do this is by following a fitness regimen that both allows for weight loss in the short and medium term as well as healthy exercise routines that can be sustained over the long-term.

However, even though many families understand the importance of healthy lifestyle choices for both themselves and their children, it can sometimes be difficult to know what type of family health program to implement. In these situations, it can be useful to get the help of trusted experts who can help guide you and your family to healthier choices while also reversing or reducing the risk of obesity in your children.
