Weigh the Facts
One out of three children and teens in the United States are too heavy or obese. Exxtra pounds put kids at risk for getting serious health problems, including diabetes, heart disease and asthma.

  • Model healthy eating habits.
  • Serve snacks and sweets wisely.
  • Don’t use food as a reward or punishment.
  • Support staying active.
  • Cut back on screen time.
  • Plan yearly well-child visits.

Help your child keep a healthy weight by setting a good example that can keep you trim, too!
