Help Your Child Maintain a Healthy Weight.

Kids who are overweight are not only more at risk for diabetes and problems with peers but are also more likely to be overweight as adults and at risk for several chronic diseases. Experts from OSF Healthcare offer the following tips for parents of an overweight child: help your child understand hunger/fullness cues; provide healthy snack options; encourage your child to exercise and spend time outside; set limits on screen time; take your child shopping and let them help you choose healthier foods; and be a model for your child by living a healthy lifestyle yourself.
