Help Your Child Lose Weight.

Obesity during childhood has been linked with several negative health outcomes that can persist and worsen in adulthood. Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles notes that minor changes can help a child maintain a healthy weight: reduce or eliminate sweetened beverages, including soda; add more vegetables to family meals; make sure your family is eating a high-fiber diet; make sure your child is getting enough sleep; eat together as a family as often as possible; be a good role model by enjoying healthy food in front of your child; limit your child’s screen time to no more than two hours per day; and encourage your child to be active.
