As we discussed in our previous blog, Childhood Obesity: Causes, Challenges, and Consequences, there are 3 million new cases of childhood obesity each year. The number sounds startling, however, it’s not the end all be all. There are ways to combat childhood obesity, prevent it, and get it under control once it’s already taken its hold. These tips center around lifestyle changes, while focusing on baby steps. A small difference in each day for thirty days straight will have a far greater impact than two days of big changes in a 30 day period.
Obesity. A stigma-soaked word for many. Every parent wants healthy children who love themselves, who have the best opportunities life can offer them. Childhood obesity can feel like a thunderstorm on the parade of life. One might even forget it’s not always a choice, sometimes it’s a disease. Sometimes it’s even a symptom of a disease.
