I am continuing the childhood obesity series with more from Mayo Clinic.com. “Childhood obesity treatment and prevention begins at home and as I have discussed previously, weight loss must be a family affair. Childhood obesity is usually caused by eating too much and exercising too little. The solution is eating healthier foods and increasing physical activity, but it’ll be tough for your child to do it alone. The most effective way to treat — and prevent — childhood obesity is to adopt healthier habits for the entire family.”

Portion control is critical for all of us and it is especially important in the messages that we give to our children. As a child food was put on my plate and I was told that there was no dessert until my plate was clean. My parents grew up during the Great Depression and wasting food was one of the greatest of sins.

I watch parents force their children to sit and eat when the child isn’t interested in eating. It is typical (and I suggest natural) for children to go two or three days without eating , or eating very little and then they are bottomless pits for two or three days. That is a good thing. They eat when they are hungry rather than eating by the clock. It would serve us adults to learn how we were meant to eat by paying attention to our children. Not only would there by less childhood obesity, there could also be less adult obesity.

So please, don’t force your kids to eat and don’t make them clean their plate. Offer them healthy snacks of vegetables and fruits. Minimize candy and other junk food. Offer healthy meals and snacks. Be a positive roll model.
