Four factors that can make all the difference in promoting a healthy weight child.
- Involve your child in grocery shopping and cooking
- Avoid having “food rules” like finish all your food on your plate
- Get the kids playing actively inside and outside
- Make being active a priority
These are based on new research released by the SymphonyIRI and FMIcompleted in April 2010. The study reports “We have found that just a few differences in behaviors can make the difference between the path to overweight and obesity, and that of maintaining healthy weight children.”
