Childhood Obesity – Childhood Obesity Prevention

Researchers who followed over 8,000 US 4 year olds found that regularly engaging in the following 3 activities was associated with a dramatic reduction in obesity risk:  eating “family” dinner 5 or more times a week, watching TV less than 2 hours a day, and getting at least 10 ½ hours of nightly sleep.  (Pediatrics, Feb 2010) Check out my “What’s for Dinner” menu and recipe booklet for help with your “family” dinners.
