A healthy diet and regular exercise can do the trick to push the diabetes, blood pressure and unwanted diseases a mile away. As I represent in a healthcare site and working for diabetes care, I meet many diabetes patients who can control their glucose level by their diet and regular workout. Junk foods are tastier, but not good for health, so try to avoid it for your children. The parents need more attention of their children’s diet. Just try these two steps and find a beautiful environment in your family.

Thanks for including the link to International Walk-to-School Day. Last week thirteen schools in my community participated in Walk-to-School Day. Walking or biking to school with your child is a great, active way to start the day, and it’s good for the environment!

What I would add, however, is that leading example does not always guarantee a change. Children will not change by themselves, they need to be accompanied by the one who shows a good example. What is more, she/he should do it in a way they enjoy it. Children need to enjoy things because it is rather unlikely that they would be persuaded by their reason about the importance of having balanced nutritious diet and having enough physical activities. So making things fun for them-whether eating veggies or walking to school rather than taking a bus- can be a key to changing bad habits of our children.

Yes, we definitely need to disengage from all the “electronics” and adopt a more active lifestyle. However, what do you think children think when we tell them to get off their video games or computers, but we’re always connected to our cell phones or blackberries? We’re sending the wrong message with our actions.

Just a thought,

Lina

This statistic is three times the rate of obesity just one generation ago! I agree it is very important for parents to take an active role in controlling this terrible epidemic, but even more important for parents to understand the environmental factors they are up against.

To begin, highly concentrated sugar drinks and unhealthy, high coloric foods are the primary options in school lunch rooms. Unhealthy food options are heavily advertised, making it difficult for children to make healthy food decisions. The amount of physical activity in schools does not meet standards, and fewer children (mainly high school students) are actively participating in physical education class. Many households do not have a safe recreational area for their children to play, and may not have easy access to transportation that will bring them to safe recreational play grouds. Portion sizes have been steadily increasing over the years, making it difficult for children and parents to decrease caloric intake. Lastly, television, computers, and video games promote a sedintary lifestyle, which often goes hand-in-hand with unhealthy snacking.

Understanding the environmental factors that contribute to obesity, hopefully will help families form better eating and excercising habbits! Setting achievable short term goals can help families stay motivated and achieve positive health outcomes. Why not try adopting one “Active Families” activity listed on the Let’s Move Initiative website? Take advantage of all the great resources out there to promote healthy habbits and visit the blog links to get great ideas!

How much liquid do you consume in a day? What a wake up call you all will get!
Ever go to a new doctors office and fill out their info form? why do they not ask
this simple question?

If we will die within 78 hours from dehydration, why then do they not get to the
root of the problem and ask all of us what our fluid intake is?

Children and elderly are water starved, their choices are the tap or but it.
In your public schools teachers and staff will not drink the same water the kids
have to drink why?

Do a beverage survey on these kids like we have and see for yourself what they
admit to drinking. Why Is this simple task so hard for medical people to understand.
doctors treat symptoms, not the problem. For every symptom, they have a prescription.

Solution: give these kids and seniors a clean chlorine free glass of water and you
will see an amazine turn around with Asthma and overall health!

Different generation makes a new generation and none of them are the same. We were surprised when our children protesting us, that similar when we protested our parents……
