Childhood obesity is a growing epidemic affecting everyone’s hometown, all parts of the United States, and across the world. Childhood obesity occurs when a child’s weight is well above the normal weight for his or her age and height. The extra pounds that begin in childhood may lead to future health complications such as diabetes, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol. The good news is that intervention is a successful solution. Follow these helpful tips with your family to prevent or reverse childhood obesity.
