In older children, a very common problem related to nutrition is obesity. The goal of helping your child who is overweight requires a combination of lifestyle and dietary changes.
These changes include:
- routine exercise
- limiting television and computer playing time
- restricting high calorie snacks
- developing healthy eating habits
Frequently these changes need to involve the whole family in order to be successful.
Children's Healthcare of Atlanta has developed a program called FIT KIDS which addresses these issues in our community. For more information on this program call (404)785-7236.
