Child obesity is a serious problem in the US. Even the first lady has campaign against obesity. It’s real and it’s happening. There is a high number of obesity in children because children nowadays are addicted to McDonalds. McDonalds is so good that children can’t stay away from it. How can you stay away from those burgers and fries? I can’t even stay away from them myself but I have to work hard to stay away from it. It’s fattening. Dieting has become poor for many children in the US due to the temptation of fast food and busy parents who can’t afford to feed their children right. How can you help children stay in shape?
Lecturing to them about healthy eating
Kids don’t really know how fattening some foods are and how they get to gain weight. They haven’t mastered this yet. You have to explain to them that fast food and junk food will make them gain a lot of weight. You will also need to let them know that consuming a lot of calories will also cause them to gain weight.
Don’t let them go to McDonalds
Tell them that McDonalds is not a place for healthy food. You just have to tell them that because McDonalds is not a place to eat if you want to lose weight.
Teach them about nutrition
Children won’t know about good nutrition unless you teach them about it. You have to teach them good nutrition. If you don’t they won’t know what are good food to eat and what to avoid.
Have them exercise
They will need you to teach them how to exercise. This is a good way to keep in shape and lose weight.
Any kind of hobby will help them lose weight. You should teach them how to play sports and to lose weight.
Eat with them
When you eat with them, you can teach them good eating habit. They will see that you eat good nutritious food and they will follow.
Buy only healthy food at home
If you buy junk food, they will eat it too. You have to buy healthy food to prevent them from eating junk food. If it’s not available at home, they can’t eat it.
Don’t give them money for fast food
If you give them money, the first store that they will hit is McDonalds. They will not eat fruits or vegetables. No one does unless it’s the only thing that is available. This is why you must buy food for them to bring to school and also let them go home to eat healthy food instead of stopping at Carls Jr.
