American Kids are getting fatter -- The surgeon general of the United States now ranks excess weight and obesity as the number one public health concern. Obesity related illnesses kill almost as many Americans each year as tobacco. You warn your children about the health risks of smoking. Being overweight carries similar risks. There are many things you can do to help keep your child happy and healthy:
Keep up your child up-to-date on his immunizations to minimize the risk of major illnesses and diseases. Make sure they are done on time.
Feed your children nutritious foods three times a day to keep his immune system healthy. Make sure the meals include all the food groups to ensure they are getting plenty of vitamins.
Make sure your children get plenty of sleep. Children should get at least eight to ten hours of sleep a night. Their immune system depends upon adequate sleep.
Another way is to limit the amount of television your children watch. Make sure they get outside and play. They need exercise and sunlight.
Teaching your children to wash their hands after using public restrooms is another way to keep your child healthy.
Get them involved in the martial arts. The martial arts offers more than physical activity. It offers a means of learning self-discipline, focus, respect, and many other of the important life skills needed for success.
Inform your children not to share foods or drinks with other children as well as grooming supplies such as hair or toothbrushes. This will prevent the transfer of germs and lice.
have your children use hand sanitizer after playing with shared toys or playground equipment. The children using them previously may have been sick.
