- Exercise regularly: Sport is often thought of as something only for adults, but this notion is dead wrong. With increasing rates of childhood obesity, it is absolutely essential that children exercise or be physically active.
- To eat healthy food: This is one of the most important steps one could take to prevent obesity. Choose foods that are healthy and nutritious for your child rather than sugary drinks and processed foods. Junk food often tends to increase your body weight, which eventually leads to obesity.
- Keep track of their screen time: When they spend time in front of their TVs, cell phones, and other devices, they often tend to sit in one place. This contributes to their sedentary lifestyle and also impacts their sleep cycle. The bright light emitted by the screens often interferes with their sleep.
- To sleep well: When a child does not sleep well, it can affect their health and can also be a cause of obesity. Not only obesity, if your child does not sleep well, it can also lead to diabetes and other health problems.
