My passion about reducing and preventing childhood obesity continues to develop with more and more information coming out about the health crisis our children face. This is the first generation since the Civil War that has a shorter life expectancy that the previous generation. To me, that is criminal and inexcusable.
Again this week I heard from a child (12 years old) that she went to the refrigerator to get a snack of fruit – there was none. What she found was a cake. She went to the cupboard to see what she could find, there were chips, cookies, 1 bag of Snickers, 1 bag of Hershey kisses, and 1 bag of M&Ms. When I looked over at mom, her eyes dropped and acknowledged that her daughter was accurate. Interestingly, rather than eating this garbage, the girl went hungry and waited until dinner to eat. Much to mom’s dismay, I asked mom what she served for dinner. With much embarrassment, mom told me she drove to McDonald’s and brought home cheeseburgers, fries and milkshakes for everyone.
After taking a deep breath, I went back to our session two weeks previously and reviewed with mom her role in planning healthy meals and snacks and got a commitment that this next week will be much different. Yes, mom is busy. But her daughter now has health risks (according to her MD) due to her obesity and the daughter is embarrassed by her appearance and limited physical abilities. The daughter is doing very well with Slender For Life™. Mom also acknowledged that is would not be fair to her daughter to have her continue with the expectation of weight loss if she doesn’t even have any healthy options to choose from.
Later that night, I received an email from mom thanking me for the session and that she got it! After leaving my office, mom and daughter went to the grocery store on a major shopping trip. They also planned a family outing to the farmers market on Saturday to get fresh produce. Before unpacking the groceries, mom cleared the cupboard of the junk food and put it in the garbage.
Mayo Clinic.com tells us that preventing and ending childhood obesity has to be a family affair. Get the junk food out of the house and make weight loss a family affair. Save treats and high-calorie snacks for special occasions. (Special occasions occur a few times a year, not daily or weekly.)
