Obesity in young children cannot be ignored. Approximately 33% of Children in the US are considered obese. I often ask parents in my parenting classes who is in charge of meal planning at their house. There are always nervous laughs. How many parents make two dinners one for the family and one for a child? Parents are often, not always, the culprit enabling picker eaters. For some parents, it is easier, less stress for them to just give children high calorie foods like pizza, Mac n Cheese. There are so many wonderful nutritious foods to offer children besides the high caloric fast foods. More on that topic soon. Lets get to your paper.
Research, read, read, read…. OBESITY. What do you wonder about, what do you want to know? What questions come to mind? Do you have solutions? What are the stats? Do they bother you? Are there treatments and therapies, how does genetic behaviors and environment play into obesity. Is all this leading to diabetes, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol? You are the researcher!
