Prevention of Childhood Obesity

Time has come to reverse this obesity trend that is sweeping the world. Their are solutions that many people just do not see. What is it going to take to hold people responsible and stop the talking? Their is a way to fight this and you need to start at the beginning.

Their minds compensate for many mistakes they make in life. Eating properly is not one of those mistakes.

Nutrition must start early in the morning or by lunch time they are starving. Having breakfast early gives them the energy and stamina they need before lunch. Kids stop eating when they are full.

You need to accept your responsibility. Unless their is a medical reason that can easily explain why your child is obese, their is only one way you can start reversing what you have let happen.

Never make your children feel bad if they play poorly because that will discourage them from paying future sports. Encourage your children to use the stairs instead of elevators, walk or ride their bike places instead of getting a ride. Lead your children by example by walking with them.

But understanding the mechanics is the easy part. The challenging part is understanding the psychology of motivating kids to take action, and to do what ever is necessary to eat better, exercise more, and to naturally immunize themselves against obesity for life.

As the world ponders about obesity, we as parents and grandparents are living proof of the problem. You now have pictures to prove that you have a problem. What are you ready to do about it?

Children all over the world grow up and live the lives they were meant to live. What do you want to look back on and have to say about your kids? The time they are with you is your time. You are not their friend, you are their teacher, the one that needs to feed them and make sure they are ready for the big “bad” world out their.

Your body will keep the good stuff and learn to eliminate the bad stuff. It sounds simple and it is if your are willing to take the time and invest in your life. Learning about energy foods and how you can adapt to any lifestyle you choose, except to go back to the farm, is at your finger-tips.

Show me a school teacher, administrator, or a school board member who can do pull ups and I’ll show you a school teacher, an administrator, and a school board member who are all setting great examples for the kids in their schools to follow.

Your children did not become obese on their own. You enabled them to become obese because you do not listen to their cries for attention. You soothe their problems by saying “yes, but” I will get to you latter. Stop your busy movements for a little while and think of what I am saying to you, your children are obese and you weren’t there?

But with or without an expert’s blessing, the real solution to childhood obesity lies in the hands of individual parents and educators who work directly with individual kids, with real names, real smiles, and real needs. It’s these parents and educators who must decide whether childhood obesity is a complex and confusing dilemma, or a simple and very solvable problem.
