Preventing Childhood Obesity - How Can Parents Accomplish this Goal?

Preventing childhood obesityChildhood obesity is a problem countless families across the country are already dealing with. But if you are a parent looking into methods of preventing childhood obesity before it starts, what information is out there? The first step might be to investigate some of the causes of childhood obesity, as avoiding these factors can be a great way to avert this serious health risk.

Some of the childhood obesity causes are genetic, and therefore out of your control. However, many of the factors in childhood obesity are behavioral, and can be manipulated through efforts to change the lifestyle both you and your child live. Here are a few causes to pay attention to as you look for ways of preventing childhood obesity:

  • Overeating

  • Parental behavior, such as eating habits, exercise, etc.

  • Lack of exercise

  • Poor body image / low self-esteem

  • Bad eating habits

  • And more

Of course, you should always consult your family doctor if you are already raising a child dealing with weight issues, or if you are simply seeking methods of preventing childhood obesity. However, if you take a look at the short list of factors above, you'll notice that overuse of multimedia and entertainment outlets, such as the TV, Internet, video games, and more, can all play a role. For instance, overeating, poor food choices, and inactivity can all go hand-in-hand with spending too much time in front of the TV or computer.

Therefore, if you're looking for a potential solution you can put into practice in your home as you seek ways of preventing childhood obesity, consider the Mikko Que. Our innovative product gives you unprecedented ability to monitor and control your child's screen time in front of a range of devices in your home. With the Mikko Que you can reduce the use of electronic devices by decreasing your child's time allowance over a period of time.  For example, in a given month you might allow your child 10 hours a day of use. Then, you can reduce usage to eight hours a day the next month and so on until your child's media consumption is more in line with recommended standards. This technique is less obtrusive and will result in less resistance.  It will also give parents the peace of mind that during sleeping hours their children are not up watching TV, playing video games, or surfing the Internet.  

Contact us today to learn more about the Que and how it can help you create a healthy, effective system of media consumption in your home.
