Having been an overweight kid myself I have a special place in my heart for how childhood obesity is placing our kid’s health at risk and causing painful childhoods. Information is power – here are links to very useful information parents can act on. Our kids are depending on us to provide them with support and direction. If your child is overweight, hook up with your pediatrician to be sure your approach does not place your child at further health risk.
- Food Pyramid for Kids
- Childhood Calorie Requirements by Age
- American Heart Association’s Activities for Kids Page (oodles of resources)
