Prevent Childhood Obesity - How Can You Do It?

Prevent childhood obesityAre you a parent of a child already dealing with weight problems? Or are you simply worried about the serious health risks that childhood obesity presents and are proactively researching ways that you can prevent childhood obesity? Either way, this serious problem in our country can be brought on by a number of factors, and knowing the causes of childhood obesity is the first step in combating this issue.

Some of the causes are out of your control as a parent - although they relate to you directly. That's because sometimes obesity is genetic, meaning your family history may play a role in your child's chances of becoming obese. However, many of the causes are behavioral, meaning you can prevent childhood obesity by changing the lifestyle you and your kids live. Here are a few of these causes:

  • Lack of exercise

  • Poor body image / low self-esteem

  • Bad eating habits

  • Overeating

  • Mimicking unhealthy parental behavior, such as bad eating habits, lack of exercise, etc.

  • And more

You should always discuss any potential health issues with your family doctor, but as you can see, many of these causes can be altered by one common thread - media consumption. Think about how much screen time your kids get each day in front of the TV, computer, or video games, and how much of that time is spent idly snacking on often large amounts of unhealthy food. If so, too much screen time may be directly undermining your efforts to prevent childhood obesity.

Luckily, the Mikko Que can help you monitor and manage your children's screen time on multiple entertainment and multimedia devices in the home and can play an effective role in your efforts to prevent childhood obesity. To learn more, contact us today.
