USE THE FOLLOWING TIPS TO HELP OUR KIDS GET AND STAY FIT.
When children are overweight, it's best to focus on becoming healthy rather than on losing weight. Experts agree that increasing physical activity is the No. 1 way to battle childhood obesity. Don't expect schools to provide all the necessary physical activity for your child. Help your kids find exercises they enjoy, and encourage them to workout-or, even better, workout with them.

PATIENT INFORMATION FROM THE AMERICAN CHIROPRACTIC ASSOCIATION
PREVENTING EMOTIONAL EATING
Our relationship with food starts in childhood. In addition to modeling healthy behaviors, help your children develop healthy eating habits and avoid power struggles over food.
Remember, however, that activities that adults may prefer-such as working out on a treadmill for 30 minutes-may not excite a child. Experts say that children engage in physical activity for three reasons: to have fun, make friends and learn something new. They will not run for 30 minutes without stopping. Instead, they play in short burst of activity, stop, recover and then run again.
