September is National Childhood Obesity Awareness Month
Childhood obesity affects about 1 in 5 (19%) children in the United States, and some
groups of children are more affected than others. Children with obesity are at higher risk
for having chronic health conditions and diseases, such as asthma, sleep apnea, bone, and joint problems, and Type 2 diabetes, according to the Centers for Disease Control
and Prevention. In addition, they are at higher risk for heart disease than their peers
who may be at a lower weight.
Children with obesity are also more likely to experience bullying, social isolation,
depression, and lower self-esteem. While there is no simple solution, there are many
ways parents and caregivers can help children reach a healthy weight.
Below are a few tips from the CDC to help children maintain a healthy weight:
● Help children develop healthy eating habits
● Limit calorie-rich “temptations”
● Help children stay active
● Reduce sedentary time
● Ensure adequate sleep
● Teach by example
