Health tips for children



Overweight child


Do not put your child on a weight-loss diet unless your health care provider tells you to. Limiting what children eat may interfere with their growth.
Involve the whole family in building healthy eating and physical activity habits. It benefits everyone and does not single out the child who is overweight.
Accept and love your child at any weight. It will boost his or her self-esteem.
Help your child find ways other than food to handle setbacks or successes.
Talk with your health care provider if you are concerned about your child’s eating habits or weight.

Remember, the parents play the biggest role in your child’s life. You can help your children learn healthy eating and physical activity habits that they can follow for the rest of their lives.
