In this fast paced world we live in, children need every advantage they can get in order to thrive. Children struggling with weight control issues can have up to a 70% chance of developing cardiovascular disease if they have at least one risk factor. We want our children to work as hard as we do. Yet we are asking a great deal out of these children as they are try to navigate hurdles including bone and joint pain, sleep disorders, social difficulties, psychological difficulties as well as battling feelings of low self-esteem. They would do just about anything to look like their skinny friends. Who could possibly blame them for that?

There are ways to break the chains of poor habits. It is a well known fact that eating more healthily, increasing physical activity can lower the risks of children becoming overweight as well as helping those with weight control issues live healthier lives. Generally speaking, we all generally know what some of the solutions are yet the reality of the situation is that they are very difficult to implement. We all know that change is necessary but creating positive change often feels like an insurmountable task. If buying healthier foods and a membership to the local gym solved the problems, we would all be doing it. There is pain in staying the same and there is pain in creating change. Which do you pick? If you were an overweight child, what would you want your parents to do for you? As always, the choice is yours to make. Please keep in mind, that the longer you wait to intervene, the more difficult it will be to overcome the obstacles leading to better health.If you are concerned about your child's weight, contact us today at (484) 222 0246 to schedule a complimentary evaluation of your child's potential issues or visit: http://www.kidsweightcontrol.com for more information.
