Child obesity as moms What can we do?
The child's obesity is termed an epidemic, which in fact globally hits every industrialized country, and North America is at the top of the list. It is thought that more than 35% of children and adolescents are overweight, and this figure is expected to increase to 50% by 2010 (ie only two years later).
The sad reality is that obesity today is the first killer of children. Another shock is that our children have the honesty that the first generation has a lower life expectancy, and then "what" with their parents. This is not a legacy I want to leave to my children.
These facts are that they can, who can help and what can be done? We all heard the saying, "Kids do what we do, not what we say." The point is that we have to lead by example to adults (not just mothers). If our children live under our roof, we live in the rules. We buy the food and decide which activities are allowed at a given time. We all have televisions, computers and video games, but we definitely decide when and when to use the kids. Instead of organizing separate parts of the house in the evenings, why not join together (even if they keep their MP3s on their heads). Encourage the puppy to play outside, bicycle or play. The point is that not everyone has to go and join a gym; There are many ways to be active and can only be added to your daily routines.
We enjoy crazy busy lives, but in reality there's a lot to do about the whole health of our family and I certainly do not have the time to make healthy choices and take some action in our lives. For example, you do not have more time to prepare a salad and a healthy meal than you have to order in pizzas and wait for it to reach the house. In addition, it takes the same amount of time to cook vegetables (actually less) than boiling on mac & cheese. Changes are not necessarily powerful enough to make a difference. The goal is not to get the whole family to eat; slowly and intentionally change the family lifestyle.
The biggest objection to parents is that they consume non-healthy foods and bring physical activity into their lives by lack of time. If you had a child who should be taken on a regular (daily) prescription to treat a disease, you will soon find the time until you ask. That's true, and I know, so why do not we take the time to make our families healthy?
